Healthy Mind

The demands of university can be overwhelming. And outside your studies you might also be facing a whole range of life challenges, which at times might become a bit too much to bear. If you find yourself struggling to deal with stress, feeling depressed, or in any way struggling with your mental or emotional wellbeing, it’s important that you know the University is here to support you.

Remember, managing mental health is no different to, and no less important than, managing your physical health. If you are concerned about your mental or emotional wellbeing, seek help early.

You’ll find a wealth of resources on this site that should be of help. If you don’t find what you need here, the University offers a confidential and free counselling service to all students.

You might also wish to make use of the University’s Psychology Clinic.
