I am experiencing stress or feel anxious/depressed.

Resources for Anxiety/Depression

What is anxiety anyways? = “I should be doing something different than what I’m doing; I have so much work waiting for me; I should always be working; something’s always about to go wrong” + big spikes when an event is about to happen or is happening. Sound familiar? Everyone feels anxiety at some point, it’s a normal human emotion. It’s only a problem if it stops us from being able to do things that are important to us, like studying, seeing friends, working, taking care of ourselves through daily tasks such as eating, running errands, sleeping, showering, etc.

Student life at university is full of opportunities for personal growth both inside and outside the classroom. But there are times when students feel the need for support:

  • In times of loneliness or personal need, perhaps due to anxiety, depression or financial problems.
  • In times of change, as you prepare for marriage or decide a career.
  • In times of crisis, such as death, accident or serious illness.
