Student mental health hub

Adjusting to student life can be tough. You might be getting used to a new living situation, or moving away from home for the first time. Maybe you're nervous about starting your course, or you're worried about making new friends. Additionally, we are all facing the challenge of coronavirus, which may be having a huge impact on your student experience.
