Since COVID-19 has uprooted the way students are able to live and learn, there has been a significant rise in mental health issues. As well as the usual suspects of stress and depression, the pandemic has brought with it a rise in loneliness, anxiety, uncertainty about the future, and an even stronger pressure around jobs and employment.
So what can you do to help with your mental health whilst studying?
Everybody has a different way of dealing with their mental health, their own support networks and ways of coping. But no matter what your coping strategy is, know that you are not alone, and that there are loads of options to help this UMHD and everyday.
Join the UMHD movement this year by hashtagging #UniMentalHealthDay and share your experiences and support other students.
