To ensure that you are able to take steps to deal with any difficulties that may arise, the University has a range of student support services available, which include 24/7 mental health and wellbeing support and Six Ways to Wellbeing resources.

The Counselling & Mental Health Service

If you experience issues of a personal nature (rather than academic), our Student Support and Wellbeing team in Student Support Hub will be able to offer you advice and guidance.  

It may be that we refer you to the University’s Counselling & Mental Health Service, and they may be able to refer you to other sources of professional or practical help if needed.  

Alternatively, you can also make a self-referral, and contact the Counselling & Mental Health Service independently. The Counselling & Mental Health Service offer a range of workshops, groups, 1-1 appointments and other resources to help you. For more information and to book and appointment, visit the Get Help page.

The University of Manchester Conselling & Mental Health Service is located on the 5th Floor of Crawford House. You can also contact the Counselling & Mental Health Service via phone for advice or general enquiry on 0161 275 2864 between 9am and 4.30pm (Monday-Friday), or via email to 

If you feel in need of more immediate support and urgent support outside of the Counselling & Mental Health Service working hours, visit the Help in A Crisis page.

6 Ways to Wellbeing

When it comes to your wellbeing, a small action can make a big difference. The University of Manchester’s six ways to wellbeing will help you make positive changes to keep feeling good and living well. 

The six ways to wellbeing are connect, give, take notice, be active, be healthy, as well as learn and discover. 

The great thing about the six ways is that you don’t have to do all of them – and some activities, such as going on a walk with friends, allow you to do more than one at once. It’s important to find a blend of things that fits with your lifestyle yet stays fresh and varied, keeping you inspired. 

More details about each of the 6 Ways to Wellbeing and actions that you can take can be found on the Student Support website
