Wellbeing resources

If you are looking for some advice or support on personal issues, whether big or small, BU is here to help.

There are several support services on campus which are available to all BU students including AskBU, Faith & Reflection, Student Wellbeing and SUBU Advice. We have also put together an A-Z of resources including external support services, which we hope you will find useful.

Please remember you are not alone, if you are feeling vulnerable the best action is to seek support and get help from either a professional or someone you trust.

We are working to provide information on specific issues relevant to you. Currently this includes alcohol & drugs, anxiety, depression, diabetes awareness, homesickness, pregnancy, relationships, sexual health, social media support. We are aware that you can be affected by many personal issues and we will be expanding this section further.
