Welcome to the Student Counselling and Mental Health Advice Service

If you are in crisis or need to speak to someone urgently, please go to our other sources of support page here.

If your query is not urgent you can email us directly at counselling@imperial.ac.uk and we will respond to you as soon as possible. If you would like to meet with a counsellor, you can complete our online registration form here.

You can also now refer yourself or another student to the Student Mental Health Intervention Officers by completing the Concerned About a Student Form. You can find out more about out Student Mental Health Intervention Officers on their dedicated page.

The Student Counselling Service is currently running a blended service. This means that when you register you will be offered either an online or in-person initial appointment, whichever is the first available. This will allow you to be seen by our service more quickly, after which you can discuss with your Counsellor whether you would like your ongoing sessions to be online or in-person.  If you are unable to have either an online or in-person session please let us know when you register. 

Once you have completed the registration form, your name will be on the list and we will offer you a first appointment within approximately 4 weeks.

More immediate support is also available to you via your departments Wellbeing Advisors/Welfare Officer. Find the name of your Wellbeing Advisor/Welfare Officer here    

PLEASE NOTE - it is important that you are registered with a GP surgery (also called practices) near where you live so that you have appropriate and immediate access to emergency care and health services quickly should you need it. Your GP (general practitioner/doctor) will be your first point of contact for most physical and mental health concerns, so it is important you are registered, particularly if you have any ongoing health conditions. If you are a UK student and registered with a GP in another part of the country, we recommend that you swap your registration to a nearby practice in London so you have appropriate access to health care services when needed. If you go home during the holidays you should still be able to make an appointment at your previous local GP surgery as a temporary patient.

We have a large library of resources in the boxes below that you may find useful in the boxes below.
