A SPECIALIST mental health service has been launched for students who are experiencing lifestyle and addiction problems.

The Changing Unwanted Behaviour (CUBE) clinic will be providing free confidential support to UCL students who want help with issues including alcohol and drugs misuse, gaming and gambling.

Psychiatrists and psychologists from Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust are providing assessment and treatment.

Professor Deborah Gill said: “UCL is pleased to host this highly innovative support option for its students some of whom may be struggling with problem behaviours which we know, if not tackled early, can lead to very serious consequences for their health, their career and their life.”
