We are RGU:Nightline!

Got something on your mind? Stressed, anxious or just need to talk? RGU:Nightline is here to listen to you.

RGU: Nightline is a Student-Led peer to peer helpline that offers a non-judgmental, confidential and anonymous listening and support service to students at Robert Gordon University and in Aberdeen outside of University academic hours.

It is said that 1 in 4 people suffer from mental health illnesses and for students, this may be for a variety of issues: from academic stress, bullying or debt to loneliness, depression or bereavement; from arguments with flatmates or worries about a friend to addictions, eating disorders or self-harm; from relationship or family problems to sexuality, sexual abuse or abortion.

Our specially trained student volunteers recognise that university is a time of many changes and challenges and can empathise with callers. They don’t judge; they don’t give advice; and they certainly don’t tell callers what to do – they just listen. Best of all, Nightline is confidential and anonymous meaning students accessing the service don’t even have to give their name.
