Mental Health and Addiction

If you are struggling, The Manchester College has partnered with experts to help you in complete confidence.

Mental health problems and addictive tendencies can happen to anyone, of any age, from any background, of any race, at any time. It can be a difficult, lonely and frightening time. But here at The Manchester College, we are working closely with some fantastic experts who can, in complete confidence, support you through your struggles.

On campus, the student support team are always there to help you.

We have partnered with a leading addiction treatment firm, UKAT, to provide insight, guidance and a place to learn more about all types of addiction, from eating disorders, alcohol, cannabis, cocaine, gaming and gambling, internet and social media.

UKAT also offers a 24/7 online chat where you can reach out and talk to someone who is themselves in recovery from addiction.
