Mental Health APPS



We have recetly launched another new mental health service called TalkCampus. It’s a free to download app where students can talk with other students from around the world if they are struggling and worried about their mental health. Their student email address will give them free access. All they have to do is download TalkCampus from the app store.

TalkCampus platform is completely anonymous, the College will not be able to see if they are using it. TalkCampus is based around peer support and building a network of connections. The platform is designed as a place where students can just be themselves and talk about how they are really feeling with their peers. It is not a replacement for counseling or professional support; however, it is a great place to start talking and to make sure they understand they are not alone.
