Student Health App

Students looking for reliable health information and wanting to avoid frustrating and often unreliable online searches can use the app to:

  • reduce their physical and mental health worries
  • feel more confident about looking after their health and wellbeing
  • find support when they need it at what can be a challenging time

At a time when many university support teams stretched because of high demand, the app provides plenty of links to alternative services and gives students additional choices.

The Student Health App offers plain-talking reassurance, information and advice on more than 125 topics relevant to students in areas ranging from first aid and mental health to staying safe at university and accessing health services:

  • Mental health: Tackling stress, depression and anxiety and managing self-harm and suicidal thoughts
  • First Aid & Emergencies: Covering everything from unconsciousness to asthma attacks, burns and head injury
  • Alcohol & Drugs: Knowing the score on smoking, alcohol and common drugs – and how to manage a drug overdose
  • Love and Relationships: Discovering what’s to know about healthy relationships, abuse, contraception and sexually transmitted infections
  • Healthy Living: How to stay healthy and well at uni – and how to keep active
  • Safety: How to be safe on nights out, prevent accidents and avoid online dangers
  • NHS: How to navigate NHS Services effectively

The app can be used offline, so the content is always available.

The app has also been independently reviewed and approved:

The app is listed on the NHS Apps Library and available free-to-download on the Apple App Store and Google Play (search for ‘Student Health App’).
