Getting ready to head off to university?

Posted 23rd September 2021

5 tips to support your mental health:

  • It’s not just you who feels new and a bit unsure of things, chances are everyone else does too even if they don’t show it
  • You’ll probably need to talk to quite a few people before you meet the people you connect to, don’t worry if you don’t hit it off with the first people you meet
  • You don’t have to change yourself in order to fit in: find the people who enjoy the same sorts of things you do rather than pretend to be a different person to who you are
  • Don’t be too hard on yourself if you’re not acing every aspect of university life straight away, just being there and finding your feet is good enough to start with
  • Still struggling?  There are support systems at every uni, talk to your personal tutor or university counselling services, don’t feel you have to work it all out on your own
