Mental health and wellbeing

Feeling a little anxious or stressed during your studies is normal and can actually help you to focus and get things done. On the other hand, too much stress or anxiety isn’t productive or healthy.

Life as a student can be challenging. On top of balancing home, study and work commitments the added stress of assessments and exams can sometimes take its toll. 

Good mental health means you can appreciate day-to-day life, cope with stress, be actively involved in your studies, and manage your other responsibilities. If you maintain good mental health you’ll be better prepared to deal with change and challenges. More than just being healthy and happy, wellbeing is our ability to flourish and thrive. It's about having positive personal and professional relationships, experiencing personal growth, being motivated, and feeling good about your achievements. A strong sense of wellbeing contributes to good mental health.

Having a supportive environment also helps. As well as getting assistance from our Student Support Services when you need it, the below websites provide a range of helpful services that promote mental health and wellbeing.
