WELLNESS SUPPORT

Life as a student can be tough sometimes, trying to balance home, study and work commitments with the added stress of assessments 
and exams can take its toll. Feeling a little anxious or stressed during your studies is normal and can actually help you to focus and get things 
done. On the other hand, too much stress or anxiety isn’t productive or healthy.  These resources and helplines can be helpful.
