Involve those closest to you
We strongly encourage you to keep in touch with the people in your life who care about you. This may be family, friends, or someone else whom you trust. If there are times during your university experience when you feel upset, "down", or unwell, or if you ever feel things are too much, talk to the people who care about you. Let them know if you're finding things difficult. Activate your web of social support. It can often be a huge relief and a powerful source of help and comfort.
