Students at Oxford now offered our 24 hour online service

14 Apr 2020 | By Jessica Smith

All students studying at the University of Oxford can access our 24 hour, safe online mental health support. We’re offered in 95 further and higher education institutions across the UK with over 20,000 members logging on each month to give each other support.

Students will have access to our vibrant online community of anonymous members from all walks of life, who provide shared and lived experience of struggles with exam stress, relationship issues, isolation, depression and anxiety. In addition, students can access self-guided courses, a creative tool, self- assessments and a library of information, all moderated 24/7 by clinically managed and professionally trained Wall Guides.

Our newly implemented service comes in response to recommendations outlined in the University Mental Health Charter published by Student Minds, which ‘provides a set of principles to support universities across the UK in making mental health a university-wide priority’. Our 24-hour online support will sit within a suite of resources in Student Welfare & Wellbeing, complementing the counselling team at Oxford.

Our CEO, Henry Jones, comments;

“To welcome a world-renowned university such as Oxford is a milestone in our student offering. In such isolating times, I am confident that offering a 24-hour community with a large student population will support students through the next few turbulent months and throughout the rest of their university life.”
