When you’re at university, it’s not always obvious what you should do if you have any concerns about your health. We recommend the free Student Health App, which contains over 900 pages of reliable health information, including mental health advice.
The app was co-created by practising doctors and students and has been approved as a trusted source by the NHS. And it works offline so, once you’ve downloaded it, you don’t even need an internet connection to access the app content.
How could it help me?
The Student Health App offers plain-talking reassurance, info and advice on 125+ topics, including:
What do people say about it?

Where can I get it?
This app should not be used by young people under the age of 18, people with a chronic health condition who need tailored health advice or people living outside of the UK.
