Urgent support


NHS Talkworks

NHS Talkworks

We work closely with TALKWORKS, a free and confidential talking therapy service provided by Devon Partnership NHS Trust.

The TALKWORKS team offers support for mental health difficulties including depression and anxiety. They can share tools and techniques to improve your mental and physical wellbeing.

TALKWORKS offer one-to-one appointments either face to face or over the telephone. They also offer online CBT programmes and wellbeing workshops on various topics including mindfulness, improving sleep and, resilience and wellbeing.

TALKWORKS can help if:

  • you feel low or anxious;
  • the way you are feeling is affecting your daily life;
  • you feel overwhelmed by your thoughts and feelings;
  • you are struggling to cope.

You don’t need a referral from your doctor to access this support, but you do need to live in Devon for your assessment and be registered with a Devon doctor’s (GP) surgery. Most students register with the Student Health Centre on the Streatham campus or with a doctor close to where they live.

If you prefer to remain registered with your doctor in your home town, you can search for alternative NHS psychological therapies services.
