Nightline Association

Description of service

Provide emotional support to students in distress. The telephones are manned throughout the night during term time when other specialist university welfare services are closed. Nightline contacts can be found via website. Now operating at over 120 universities and colleges each individual Nightline is run by students for students at their university. Nightline is confidential and anonymous. Can help with issues including academic stress, bullying, debt, loneliness, depression, bereavement, arguments with flatmates, concerns about friends, addictions, eating disorders or self harm, relationship and family problems, sexuality, sexual abuse or abortion. Some Nightlines also offer support via email, instant messaging, or in person and many offer information and supplies such as pregnancy tests, condoms and attack alarms.
