Did you know?
You can talk about personal issues on here without people finding out who you are.
On The Student Room you can chat about any health and relationship concerns, questions or issues you might want a second opinion on – and you can do so with complete privacy by making your post anonymous. Just tick the anonymous box as you make your post.
Chat to other students around the country who understand what you are going through. Whether you have concerns about dates, your sexuality, a personal health problem you might be embarrassed to talk to someone about or something else – whatever it is, don’t be afraid to ask. Of course, when it comes to serious problems we do recommend that you also seek professional advice from your doctor, family, friends or teachers. But if you simply want to get some opinions, The Student Room can be a good place to start :)
Can you help other students?
As you can see above, there are thousands of students across the UK looking for relationship and health advice. Some of their questions might be about something you have experienced yourself. Can you help them by responding with some useful advice or words of support? You could make a real difference to someone.
