How The Students’ Union can support you!

University is an amazing experience, but student life can at times be challenging. We want you to remember that it’s ok to ask for help and seek support for your mental health at any time. Check out the range of wellbeing support services available to you during your time at UWE Bristol.

Advice Centre

It’s okay not to be okay, and The Students’ Union Advice Centre is here to help, so don’t suffer in silence.  You can drop into the office at Frenchay between 10:00 – 16:00, Monday - Friday, or you can make an appointment or contact an adviser by phone or email (suadvice@uwe.ac.uk). Students at Glenside and Bower can arrange to see an adviser at their campus weekly during term time.

24/7 Crisis Textline

We know that some students find it easier to message or text. That’s why we launched the 24/7 Crisis Textline in partnership with UWE Bristol and Crisis Text Line. The service offers crisis support to UWE Bristol students. If you find yourself in distress, just text 'UWE' to 85258. All texts are answered by trained volunteers, with support from experienced clinical supervisors.

Campaigns

The Students’ Union and UWE Bristol run a variety of wellbeing campaigns throughout the year, ranging from Feel Good February to #UWESaysRelax. We also host the Welfare Awards, which recognise the contribution that staff and students make towards ensuring the wellbeing of UWE Bristol students.

In addition, there is also a range of support on offer from UWE Bristol including online counselling, the Wellbeing Service, self-help resources, an Out-of-Hours Team and the University Health Centre. For information on these service visit uwe.ac.uk/wellbeing.
