Big White Wall: we are partnering with Big White Wall this year to offer 24/7 mental health support to students. It is free for everyone who signs up using their Queen Mary emails. You will have an online support network which includes guided support progammes and resources for self-management. Find out more here: https://www.bigwhitewall.co.uk/
7cups.com is a website that offers free online counselling via instant messenger. It’s completely anonymous and worth a go if you think it might be beneficial.
The International Counselling Service can provide private, english speaking counsellors. It is free to have the initial consultation but there will be a charge for any counselling sessions you book. The university may be able to help you cover these costs but it’s worth checking with Student Services first : http://www.icsparis.com/index.asp
Nightline is a confidential and anonymous listening support service. It is run by volunteers throughout the night and allows university students to talk about whatever is on their mind. Every university has its own Nightline that is run by students from their university : in our case, the University of London. http://nightline.org.uk/

The SU will be running various mental health campaigns throughout the year. Keep your eyes peeled on social media and in your emails for more information and if your mental health is affecting your studies, it is best to consult your personal tutor and they will then be able to guide you.
