Along with students, University employees can now access free online support using Togetherall.
Togetherall is designed to help people get support to take control of their wellbeing and feel better. It provides 24/7 peer-to-peer and professional support (from experienced clinicians who are always online), plus a range of courses and tools to help people self-manage their wellbeing.
This service is safe, their community is anonymous, and it is free to all staff and students at Loughborough University.
The online platform offers three key strands of support:
- Resources: Access to a variety of free articles, tests, and techniques to take control of your wellbeing.
- Courses: Find courses specific to your concerns (for topics such as sleep, anxiety, weight management, and depression) to manage your mental health and feel better.
- Community: Connect with other users to discuss issues and share concerns in an anonymous format, in addition to speaking with Togetherall’s professionals.
To register, simply head to their website and select ‘Register’ in the top right-hand corner, or alternatively ‘Join us’ in the middle of the page. On the next page, choose ‘I’m from a University or College’ where you’ll then be asked to register your University email address. Next, you’ll be asked to create a username and password for your own account – please ensure your username cannot identify you in any way in order to ensure you can remain anonymous within the Togetherall community.
And don’t forget, we have a variety of other internal and external services available through the University to support your mental, physical and social wellbeing. You can find out more about our services here.
