Managing Stress

Starting university can be a stressful time for many students. Leaving home to start Uni means lots of big changes – such as moving to a new area and leaving your family, making new friends, managing on a tight budget and starting your studies.

For most students, these changes are exciting, but for some they can become overwhelming. The first signs of stress overload include: irritability, sleep problems, headaches, loss of appetite, anxiety and depression.

If you think you may be feeling lonely, down or suffering from stress, why not come and talk to us about it?
