Find access to Warwick’s mental health services here
As we begin to reach the end of Term Two, exams, coursework and assessments start to pile up, and it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed and anxious about all the growing pressure.
Whether it’s social stress, academic worry or anything in between, here are the local services that the university offers which you might find helpful if you want to reach out for mental health support.
Warwick Wellbeing – Brief Online Consultation via the Wellbeing Portal
Open 10am to 3pm, Monday to Friday, accessing Warwick Wellbeing’s Portal can offer you a brief online consultation with a professional advisor on the same day. Here, you will be given advice and be directed to the support that best suits your needs.
In this brief consultation, the advisor will ask you questions and gather any relevant information to then connect you with further help – for example, either a psychologist, psychiatrist, therapist etc. through the university.
The University of Warwick Health Centre
To access GP Mental Health services on campus, you can book an appointment with the University of Warwick Health Centre. You can do this by calling them directly, and the Health Centre can be found on campus (Health Centre Road; in between Rootes/Bluebell and Jack Martin).
The services provided by the Health Centre are less of a talking therapy and more of a way to be referred to wider NHS mental health services, such as referrals to different departments/teams, and prescribed medication.
Please note that the Health Centre’s opening hours are from Monday – Friday: 9am – 6pm during Term Time, and it is important to call them to book an appointment as early as you can since there can often be a long queue.
Phone: 0247 526 3418
Wellbeing Self-Support Webpage
Here, you can access plenty of online resources and articles for self-help. These topics range from anxiety to healthy sexual relationships; loss to panic attacks. These resources may be helpful if you need more information about your own mental health, or even if you’re just looking to research more about what it is that you’re going through.
Additionally, many of these topics will provide information on where you can seek further help or connect you to other resources, if you should require it.
Warwick Nightline provides a confidential, student-run, non-judgemental support listening service. They are open from 9pm-9am Monday to Friday during term time, and 9pm-1am on weekends. You can call them through the numbers provided below, and they are also available through Instant Messaging (9pm-1am), drop-in in person at the Nightline building (by Rootes, 9pm-9am) or through email (always open, even through the holidays).
Please note, however, that Nightline is strictly a listening service provided by volunteer students. They won’t give professional advice, but are very useful if you simply want to be heard.
They also provide pregnancy tests, attack alarms, condoms, tampons, sanitary towels, lube, earplugs, tea, and biscuits for free if you drop-in at the Nightline building.
