About TalkCampus

About Us

We build intelligent, global peer support platforms that offer safe, engaging places for millions of people to get support for their mental health. 

 

We built TalkCampus specifically for students in recognition of the unique challenges they face and we’ve designed our service to ensure that universities and colleges can offer affordable protection and support for their entire student body round the clock. 

 

Intuitive Design

User centric, beautiful design with regular updates, new features and a familiar feel ensure that our communities are spaces where students want to spend time and engage. 



Clinical Excellence

Our blend of safe social networking is unique, upholding the highest safety standards and best practices whilst creating a warm, welcoming environment. Our platforms are professionally moderated with real-time escalation. 

 

World Class Technology

Our machine learning classifiers underpin our platforms identifying in milliseconds when someone is at risk of harm. We are at the cutting edge of online peer support working with leading researchers across the world. 


We understand how important it is for mental health support to be simultaneously impactful, safe and engaging; a place where students want to spend time. 

 

Our global platform is diverse, accessible wherever students are and ensures that whatever time of day students need us, there are others there waiting to support and listen. Students use our peer support platform in over 26 languages, wherever they are in the world via the TalkCampus app. 

 

Meaningful, customised safeguarding and escalation mean that we offer joined up support. Not only are students escalated and signposted to relevant services in real time, TalkCampus also alerts you when students are at risk. We believe creating joined up care is how we can offer the most impactful support to those struggling.

 

Why Peer Support? 

Social connection saves lives. Research shows us that bringing people together is the most protective factor against deteriorating mental health and suicidal feelings. The internet and it’s online disinhibition effect can ease people into taking those difficult first steps to seek support whilst transcending the geographical boundaries and connecting like minded people around the world. Moderation and enforced community guidelines ensure that our communities are healthy, safe places to be whilst also allowing for real communication, authenticity and not shying away from difficult topics.
