Mental Health Advisory Service


Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the Alsop Building is now closed. Student Services (including Counselling and Mental Health Advisory Service, and Student Welfare Advice & Guidance) will be providing enhanced support through phone and email between 9 am and 5 pm each day. For further information about COVID-19, please see the University wide FAQs at  


The University’s Mental Health Advisors provide specific services to students attending the University of Liverpool who experience complex or significant mental health difficulties. Our aim is to enable students to successfully complete their studies at the university.

Whilst the service does not replace those provided by the NHS, including crisis services, it does compliment them. We provide someone to talk to within the University should a student need to.

Contact with a Mental Health Advisor can also help to determine which other services located within and outside of the University may be appropriate to support a student.

We provide emotional and practical support, intervention and advice on any concern about mental health issues, at any time during a student’s studies here at the University.

We are also able to liaise with other services in relation to mental health matters on behalf of students and support onward referral when this is required.

The service is located at the Alsop Building which is adjacent to University Square situated within the main Campus (Building 750, square E7 on the Campus Map).

Accessing the Mental Health advisers is described in the following section.
