At Find Digs we are committed to supporting student Mental Health and Wellbeing.
We understand that Mental Health and Well being can mean different things to each person and at different times.  We understand that moving from the comforts of home to university can be a both very exciting yet life changing step for some students.  Adjusting to life at university or in  your halls can cause some challenges and therefore if you feel you are struggling and need help it is important to access some important services which are available.
In the first instance we advise students to follow the below points:
  • Avoid using drugs and alcohol
  • Stay around family and friends or go to a safe place and call one of them
  • Call us at Find Digs and we can get staff at the residence to perform a check on a student if they are in the residence.
  • Get in contact with the relevant team at your university who also may be able to help.
  • Make a safety plan that you can save on your phone and read during difficult moments
  • Speak with your GP. Most surgeries will have emergency appointments especially in the morning.
  • Call 999 or 111 immediately.
  • You can call the Samaritans on 116 123 to talk to someone at any time, day or night, 24/7
  • You can text Shout on 85258
  • You can download Stay Alive app, an app for those at risk of suicide and those worried about someone
