Share and hear ideas about looking after your wellbeing at fun excursions and events that help you connect with other international students.
Are you looking after your mental health and wellbeing? Need someone to hear you out?
We all know what taking care of our physical health looks like – eating right, exercising regularly and getting plenty of sleep. But do you know how to look after your mental health and wellbeing? We know that life as an international student can sometimes be challenging and busy. But to make the most out of your uni experience it’s super important to take a step back and make the time to look after you.
Sometimes it helps to speak to someone going through the same things as you. Our friendly International Student Peer Support team are current international students who can lend a supportive ear. They will provide a safe space for you to share and hear tips and ideas about how to look after your mental health and wellbeing, overcome challenges, and build your resilience.
