As part of the uni application process, some universities require candidates to attend an interview. With the correct preparation, they are a fantastic way to show the university what you have to offer as a student. Discover how to prepare for a uni interview here.
What is University Mental Health Day 2023?
What is University Mental Health Day all about? University Mental Health Day is the national day for student mental health in our universities. It is a day created with the intention of breaking mental health stigma.
UMHD brings together the university community to make mental health a university-wide priority. And create ongoing year-round change to the future of student mental health. And ensuring that no student should ever feel alone with their mental health.
No one’s immune from suffering with their mental health.
It’s important that we all face up to the reality that most young people will experience some sort of mental health issues. Not just during their university years and beyond and there’s nothing weak or shameful about it. There is a lot of pressure on us all to live up to the perfection presented online everywhere you look. But these presentations are rarely the reality when you fully look into people’s lives. What we can do is seek help when we need it and be there for others when they share their own struggles.
