Support for students who are currently based overseas

Lancaster students who are currently based overseas can access self-help resources and are able to use Silvercloud. SilverCloud is an online self-help programme which uses evidence based techniques to help individuals learn to manage common mental health difficulties as effectively as possible. Students can also contact the Counselling and Mental Health Service and College Advisory Teams for general advice and guidance.

At the current time, Universities across the UK are clarifying the position in relation to providing specialist in-person mental health support for students who are based overseas. This is due to potential legal implications in providing clinical interventions when the mental health practitioner and client are based in different countries. The University Counselling and Mental Health Service will update this information and provide further clarification, once the position across the Higher Education Sector becomes clear.

If you feel that your difficulties are having a significant impact on your daily life, you may wish to submit a self-referral form.  You will then be invited to an assessment, where you may be signposted to a group or workshop, short-term one to one support, or any of the above interventions, if appropriate.
