Health resources at Liverpool

Your first priority should always be your own health, safety, and well-being. No project, paper, grant or collaboration is more important than that.

In particular, time as a graduate students and as a postdoc is known to cause undue stress, resulting in consequences ranging from mild to extremely severe.

The University of Liverpool has a number of resources that may be of assistance:

  • Student Services: General information and links to the different types of support offered to university students.
  • Mental Health Advisory Service: The service can help you settle into student life and offers advisory on mental health issues. If you feel concerned that you or someone you know may have more complex mental health needs, contact the Mental Health Advisory Service ( or call 0151 794 3304).
  • Counselling Service: The University offers drop-in counselling sessions. This is not an emergency service. In the event of an emergency call 2222 (internal) or 999 (external).
  • Self-help Information: There is a lot of information on self-help with tips and information.
