Student Assistance Programme - Spectrum.Life


You may feel at a crisis point or are just feeling a bit rubbish and need to offload.

You can access a 24/7 out of hours mental health support line via Spectrum.Life. All calls are answered by clinically trained counsellors or psychotherapists.

You can talk to them about anything, including stress, anxiety, low mood, financial worries, loss and grief, relationship difficulties and substance abuse issues.

This is completely free to all our students, with a range of ways to interact from phoning, texting, Whats App, or Zen chat (through the web portal).

You can also download the app for access to hours of wellbeing and lifestyle advice and gain rewards for achieving wellbeing goals.

Please note Spectrum.Life will ask for some basic details to ensure you are eligible to use the service. All services provided through Spectrum.Life are done so in total confidence. The identity of individuals and personal details will always be protected.
