All University of Sunderland students are able to access Silvercloud free of charge. Silvercloud is an online CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) programme which can be tailored to your specific needs. You can access the programme on your computer, tablet or mobile phone. Many of our students have found the programme helpful.

In response to the global Covid-19 pandemic, Fika has created a dedicated series of programmes allowing students to learn from expert psychologists, other students, academics and professional athletes in five-minute video, audio and text programmes.

These programmes are specifically designed to help combat the challenges of remote study and the mental health impact of the Covid-19 pandemic

Everyone is on their own mental health journey. Sometimes you can feel like no one know what you are going through.

You told us you wanted support outside of hours. We listened to your feedback and partnered with Togetherall.
You can now access this totally free.
