Staying Mentally Healthy

Did you know that graduate students are at a higher risk of experiencing mental health issues?

“Graduate students are more than six times as likely to experience depression and anxiety as compared to the general population”Evans et al., Nature Biotechnoloogy


You are not alone!  If you feel like you may need help don’t be afraid.  Talk to your friends, family, or supervisor.  Talk to the Graduate Chair or a faculty member you are comfortable speaking to.  Consider the following resources (and printed copies are available in our Mental Health Pamphlet Stand at 411 Buller).
