The Université de Lyon supports the initiatives of organizations working for the well-being of all students. Find out more about Nightline Lyon’s night-time listening service and how to get involved.

Nightline Lyon and its listening service

Since 2016, the Nightline France organization has been working to improve the mental health of students. In 2020, its Lyon branch began offering a night-time listening service (by phone or online chat) to all students in Lyon and Saint-Étienne, regardless of their field of study.

This listening service is open from 9:00 p.m. to 2:30 a.m., with volunteers available to talk anonymously, confidentially, and without direction or judgment, with anyone who feels the need to talk about any topic (loneliness, study-related stress, relationship issues, anxiety, or even just the latest Discovery series).

Become a volunteer!

This listening service is provided by a team of committed student volunteers trained by professionals.

Would you like to get involved this year?

To become a volunteer, all you need is a kind heart and the willingness to give your time to listen to others. By embarking on this rewarding adventure, students will have the opportunity to connect with peers from a wide variety of backgrounds, learn about teamwork, and work with the organization’s staff on professional mental health prevention projects outside of their academic environment.

In practice

  • Volunteers will answer phones and chat online three nights a month at the Nightline Lyon center.
  • At the end of each shift, the organization arranges for volunteers to be driven home safely and free of charge.
  • For each new volunteer, the organization provides initial training (over two weekends) in active listening.
  • The next training sessions in Lyon are scheduled for November 4-5 and November 11-12.
  • Nightline Lyon is also looking for English-speaking volunteers.
