Stay happy with our Student Wellbeing service

Our new Student Wellbeing team are there to offer support, information and advice for all BU students around a range of issues.

They can help you if you’re looking for support for any of the following, as well as help you access more specialist services if needed:

  • Anxiety, panic, depression, low mood and other mental health conditions
  • Stress
  • Drug or alcohol use
  • Lifestyle issues including difficulties sleeping or eating
  • Relationship and family issues
  • Bereavement
  • Isolation, social anxiety and confidence
  • Advice if you are concerned about a friend.


Sarah Worley, Student Wellbeing Coordinator at BU, says “our team of Wellbeing Advisors can offer students advice and practical help with wellbeing, such as techniques to handle stress, anxiety and emotional difficulties. If you and the advisor feel that counselling could be a benefit to you, they can refer you to one of our Counsellors for support and a confidential place to talk”.

If talking therapies aren’t your thing, the team run weekly drop-in sessions in term time if you have a quick question, want to find out more about a particular support option or are worried about a friend. Workshops and group sessions run each term to help you live life to the full and get the most out of your time at BU. Or you can access information and links to other services and resources online and from their offices in Talbot House.

Drop-in sessions for this term:


The Student Wellbeing service is run by BU in partnership with Dorset HealthCare University NHS Foundation Trust. Anyone can come along to the drop-in or sign up to a workshop without registering with the service, but if you do wish to register, we take your privacy seriously and you will need to sign our confidentiality agreement.
