Counselling and mental health support

LSHTM offers a free and confidential counselling service to all our London campus-based students. 

Life is full of challenges, and many of us need some extra support at times.

Our specialist counsellors are here to help you explore and address your feelings, thoughts and behaviour in a safe and welcoming space. We offer weekly sessions either face to face or over Zoom for as long as you need. 

Students can also access mental health advice, and guidance on external support services available in the UK that might be relevant to your needs.

If you’re based in the UK, you can access urgent support through the NHS Urgent Mental Health Helpline. The link will guide you to the service operating in your area.
