Call for Participants...

If you're 18 and over and currently studying at a UK university (or have done so in the past), the University of Westminster are asking you to take part in a research study about understanding student emotions and perceptions of support. Before you decide to take part, feel free to email Laura Culshaw ( to ask any questions or to ask for further information.


Alumina is a free, online 7 week course for young people struggling with self-harm. Each course has up to 8 young people, all accessing the sessions from their own phones, tablets or laptops across the UK. The courses take place on different evenings of the week and are run by friendly, trained counsellors and volunteer youth workers. You don’t need an adult to refer you or sign you up, and no-one will see or hear you during the sessions – you’ll just join in via the chatbox. We want to help you to find your next steps towards recovery, wherever you are on your journey.
