Mental health and well-being

University is a time of great personal change and transformation as you navigate living independently and balance time between academic, social, work, and family responsibilities.

Mental health literacy is a valuable resource that you can draw upon to help you make this transition easier.

Sexual health and well-being

During the transition from second-level school to university, students develop many new relationships, some platonic and some sexual in nature.

Students also experiment more with their sexuality in the newly found independent living space in which they find themselves. This can present many challenges in terms of making good choices in relation to their sexual health and well-being.
