Mental health is something which can often be neglected. This can be because of the stigma attached to it, or simply due to the fact that many of us don’t view our mental health as an integral part of our wellbeing. It can be easy to see yourself as either being mentally well or unwell, however people are more complex than that and our mental health status can fall anywhere within a big spectrum.
It can also be difficult for students to know where to go for help and support when experiencing mental health difficulties. Asking for help when you’re feeling down can be a big step and it isn’t made any easier by a lack of information.
