Wellbeing support

At UL, you are part of a pack and should never feel like you have to go it alone. Whether you are struggling with your mental health, physical health, substance abuse or sexual health, there are plenty of supports available to you.

No matter how you're feeling, the first step towards feeling better is to talk to someone and find the right help. 

Mental wellbeing

Now more than ever, it is so important for students to take care of their wellbeing and look after their mental health. If you are stressed, feeling down, anxious, depressed or just not yourself, there is always someone that you can turn to for support, advice or even just a listening ear. 

If you need support regarding your wellbeing, whether it be related to your mental health or otherwise, you can contact UL Student Counselling and Wellbeing Service for counselling support. UL Student Counselling and Wellbeing Service provides a drop-in service Monday to Friday from 10:00am to 12 noon (last check-in 11:40).

Outside of this, there is also the UL Chaplaincy which runs weekdays from 11am to 3pm. The chaplains provide a listening service, offer a welcoming space and supportive presence to students and staff. They promote an open and caring environment where diversity is respected.  The key activities of the UL Chaplaincy team fall into 3 categories:
