Something that is very important when starting university is taking care of mental health and well-being.
In fact, this is a very important topic for everyone and something that is not talked about enough.
Starting university can be a scary experience, especially if you are living away from home for the first time
It’s ok to admit that you’re having a hard time. It’s also ok to admit when you need help. Too many people are afraid to speak up because of the fear of being stigmatised, not being taken seriously or simply because they do not know who to contact.
There is help available and nobody should ever feel ashamed about speaking up.
I’ve listed below a couple of places you can speak to but I will be updating this soon with more information.
