Looking After Your Mental Health as a Postgraduate – Introducing Student Space

It doesn’t take a global pandemic and all the disruption and stress that it brings to make student mental health and wellbeing important, but coronavirus has introduced additional challenges.

FindAMasters and FindAPhD are proud to be official partners of StudentMinds – the UK's student mental health charity. Their work helps students across the UK access free support and resources for mental health and wellbeing.

Introducing Student Space

Student Space has been set up by Student Minds to make it easier for you to find the support you need during the coronavirus pandemic, whether you’re studying an undergraduate degree or if you're doing a Masters or PhD.

The coronavirus pandemic has introduced new difficulties for students, but it’s also exacerbated some of the challenges you may already face during a degree.



How Student Space can help

Student Space is here to help you talk about your situation and get the support you need during the pandemic. There are four ways you can contact the service:

  • Call free on 0808 1895 260 between 4pm and 11pm
  • Text ‘STUDENT’ to 85258 to start a conversation, 24/7
  • Email students@themix.org.uk
  • Chat online at the Student Space website, between 4pm and 11pm

All of these services allow you to speak with trained and trusted advisors to receive confidential advice.

You can also read information and resources to help you navigate university life during the pandemic – with a range of tips on a variety of topics for example online learning, making friends and managing uncertainty. Explore what support is available at your university with the Student Space uni search directory.

It really is important to talk about your mental health at uni and to get help when you need it, so you can carry on and succeed with your degree – just like I did.
