We provide free and confidential counselling, mental health advice, a 24 hour helplineself-help resources, and workshops for student and staff of the University of Bradford. We also provide counselling for students of Bradford College. 

We work in partnership with the local NHS MyWellbeing College that provides a range of online support options for students and staff of the University.

Our counselling service is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
