Strike a balance between stress, mental health and your education at SHOC’s Q&A forum on Tuesday 18th October.
Living away from home or on campus, juggling finances, a job and relationships make student life complex and stressful.
At Getting Psyched For Study you’ll hear first-hand experiences from students who’ve managed the challenges of mental health through study; and receive professional advice for coping and minimising the impact stress can have on your education and wellbeing.
Questions will be taken from the floor on the evening and can be submitted in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org
The panel will run 4pm - 5.30pm and be followed by a student networking session 5.30pm - 6.30pm where you and fellow guests can mingle and discuss your experiences over snacks and drinks.
