We are delighted to confirm that our brand new online mental health support service, Chat with Charlie, will go live on Wednesday 16th May.
Chat with Charlie will provide online mental health support for students of the University of Essex between the hours of 6pm – 10pm three evenings per week.
The service have been developed by us alongside the Charlie Watkins Foundation and University of Essex to offer more mental health support to students like Charlie, who sadly took his own life in March 2017.
Students can seek one to one mental health support with a trained volunteer of take part in a chat forum to get support from other students. The service is completely confidential and available to anybody studying at any of the University of Essex campuses.
We would like to thank the Charlie Watkins Foundation for their generous donations which have allowed this project to be developed, and the University of Essex in helping us to design the service.
If you have any questions about the service please call 01206 764600 or visit the Chat with Charlie page on our website for opening hours and to log in.
