What kind of help do you need?
Need Urgent Help or Support?
If you are distressed or experiencing despair, try to speak to somebody now.
- Is there a family member or a friend you could call?
- Is there a neighbour who can help?
If you or anyone else is in immediate danger or harm, then please call the Police or Ambulance Service on 999.
Do you need medical or mental health help now?
If you do then it is crucial that you contact the right person and that is most likely to be your GP. They will know where to get you the specialist help you need.
To find and register with your nearest GP visit http://www.brightonandhovecccg.hhs.uk. Most students however find it more convenient to register with the Health Centre on Campus.
To register: Pick up a form at the Health Centre reception or at the Student Life Centre, or register online via http://www.unimed.co.uk/Registration.php
