The Hub TalkCampus


Don’t struggle alone. Let’s talk!

Are you feeling low and a bit overwhelmed? Do you feel like you’re struggling? TalkCampus can help! TalkCampus is a global, peer-to-peer, mentalhealthsupport network accessible any time, day or night with 24/7 support always on-hand.

Sometimes you just need someone to talk to. Someone who understands what you are going through because they are experiencing some of the same struggles. It can be difficult for friends and family to truly understand the challenges you are going through. Maybe when you talk to friends or family, you can’t say how you are really feeling.

Here for you, anytime.

TalkCampus offers a safe and completely anonymous space for you to connect with other learners. Talk about anything from exam stress, to work-life balance, to mental health, to relationship issues, and everything inbetween without fear of judgement.  
All conversations and feeds are moderated and any bullying or hate speech will not be tolerated so you are free to be you  
Protecting users is taken very seriously. All information provided and communication exchanged is kept completely confidential and will never be shared with the university.
