A dedicated helpline for students
Free 24/7 helpline opens providing mental health support for any students impacted by events in the Middle East.
Many students are experiencing significant emotional distress as a result of the escalating conflict between Israel and Hamas, and the subsequent news coverage.
We understand how difficult it can be to process the images we are seeing from the region. And for those with family and friends in the region, it is even harder. These are traumatic and distressing times, compounded by the rise in faith-based hate incidents towards both the Jewish and Muslim communities here in the UK.
That’s why Health Assured has set up a dedicated University helpline, in partnership with Endsleigh, to support anyone who is struggling with their mental health as a result of ongoing conflict.
Have you been targeted by, or witnessed, any faith-based hate?
Please contact either CST - a charity that protects the Jewish community from antisemitism, and MAMA, an independent support service for those who face anti-Muslim hatred and prejudice, if you have witnessed or experienced any incident(s) that need reporting.
Worried about friends or family in Israel and Gaza?
If you are worried about family and friends in Israel or Gaza we recommend getting in contact with the British Embassy in Israel, the Palestine Mission to the UK, or Foreign Office for more information and updates.
This service is completely free of charge and available 24/7.
If you are struggling, please don’t suffer alone. Contact student support at your university to access this free helpline and talk to a specially trained counsellor.
