Students and staff at the University of Northampton can receive free health and wellbeing advice on campus.

A pop-up wellbeing clinic is held by an advisor from First for Wellbeing at the University on Mondays. The advisor is on hand to take enquiries, make appointments and assessments.

First for Wellbeing is a health and wellbeing social enterprise set up by the University, Northamptonshire County Council and Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

The service can offer advice and point people in the right direction for services for a range of issues, including alcohol awareness; emotional  wellbeing; employment and adult learning; financial wellbeing; housing support; social wellbeing; weight management and smoking.

The clinic is open on Monday mornings from 9.30am, for general enquiries with private appointments held in the afternoon until 4.30pm.

The clinic will be in the Student Centre, Park Campus, on Monday 9 January. There are also plans for the clinic to be located in the Park Campus library, and Avenue Campus, in the future.
