Alcohol & Drug Chat.

NUSU Welfare & Support Centre.

Book in to chat with a Public Health Practitioner 

At the Welfare & Support Centre (Ground floor of the Students' Union) we welcome students to drop in to chat, get information for local services, as well to receive a range of resources to help support their wellbeing. One of the services offered is a Drug and Alcohol chat. 

NUSU has partnered with the Newcastle Public Health team to offer a confidential space for students to chat and get support on drug or alcohol use. This is a free, non-judgemental service open to all Newcastle students. Book a slot to talk through any worries or concerns you may have and to get information on additional services in the city if that would be helpful.

The appointment although booked through NUSU, is confidential between you and the Public Health Practitioner.
