The Nightline Lyon helpline service closes during summer

From July 12, 2021 to September 5, 2021

After a final watch during the night of July 11-12, the Université de Lyon's night-time helpline, run by Nightline Lyon, is closing for a summer break and will reopen on September 6, 2021.

The summer closure is an important break to allow volunteers to take a rest and to get ready for students at the start of the new academic year, all the more so this year, which has been particularly hectic for everyone with the changing health rules and the lockdowns.

The Nightline Lyon helpline will reopen on September 6, 2021


In the meantime, students can refer to the mental health section on the UdL’s health portal (French version only). It provides a lot of information to help people understand and take care of their mental health, as well as a directory of useful resources including other helplines:
