"On TalkCampus students can seamlessly transition from our peer support community to a clinician any day or night from anywhere in the world."

The University of London is committed to supporting our students to look after their wellbeing and stay motivated throughout their studies, but we understand that at times you might experience feelings of being overwhelmed or lonely. If you’d like to talk to someone, TalkCampus is an online peer-to-peer mental health and wellbeing support network – available 24/7 wherever you are in the world. 

The free app provides a platform for students to connect and support one another through their studies and has been available since February 2020. Although TalkCampus is a safe place where you can anonymously and confidentially share how you are feeling, we understand that in certain circumstances additional support might be required and so we are launching a new TalkCampus Crisis Support Line.   

If you’re experiencing a crisis 

We know that struggles can quickly turn to crisis. On TalkCampus students can seamlessly transition from our peer support community to a clinician any day or night from anywhere in the world. Our clear in app signposting lets students know exactly where to find additional support. When we identify that a student may be headed towards crisis or struggling with feelings of suicide our staff will triage them directly through to the helpline.

Clinical support will be available in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese and French, with plans to include more languages in the future. 

Talking online to people you haven’t met about your mental health may not feel natural, but TalkCampus acts as a unique, confidential platform to connect like-minded students and clinicians around the world within a safe space.

What do your fellow students think?

Whether it’s exam anxiety, depression, loneliness or a simple wish to talk with others, TalkCampus offers a friendly community where genuine support can be offered and received.
