We have a few different options for having someone to speak with.

Edgehill University provides a Chaplaincy service. The Chaplaincy is here to support Edge Hill University students and staff of all faiths and none, and they offer a confidential and non-judge mental service. The chaplaincy is not a ‘faith service’ per se – we can of course support students of faith but we are primarily a pastoral support service. Here is some information about the team.

If you would like to read about any of our Chaplains, you can view their profiles here
