Talk to your school or faculty
Is your problem about work or affecting your work? Your personal tutor or Education Service Officer may be able to help and should know if things are going on for you which are getting in the way of your work. See our list of faculties to find contact information.
Contact your GP
It might be worth getting yourself checked out, especially if you are feeling really depressed or physically run down. The Leeds Student Medical Practice also has a really useful website.
Emergency or crisis
If you need help in a crisis situation, see our contacts page for more information.
