Quokka by University College Birmingham

Quokka is a free, wellbeing messaging service available to all first year, higher education students at UCB. We send tips and coping tools directly to students' phones through social messaging platforms such as Facebook Messenger. 

Signing up is easy, simply visit www.m.me/QuokkaUCB and click 'Get Started'.

Quokka is a clever programme. It sends you advice and support that is most relevant to you when you’re most likely to need it.

Quokka is both practical and reassuring. The top tips are so useful. When I really needed help, a message came through and it was relevant, as if it knew what I was going through… absolutely amazing.
