Studying at University can be stressful and difficult and it’s important to know where to turn if your mental health becomes affected. Mental health struggles are a common problem and there is plenty of support and resources out there that can help.
Since we made our commitment to mental health, we are proud to have trained many of our team to be Mental Health First Aiders. They are trained to spot the signs and symptoms of common mental health issues, provide non-judgemental support and reassurance, and guidance to seek professional support.
