Mental Health

 

Your mental health, from your phone-alarm in the ‘am’ to closing your eyes at night, is so important to your day, your assignments, your relationships with others in college and managing the daily stresses that come up for us all. It needs to be looked after just as much as our nutritional or physical health.

 

Any combination of things can affect your mental health, from the foods you’re eating, to your exercise levels, time management, workload, or what’s happening around you with friends and family. But if you do find yourself in a bad place, there’s lots of people and resources where you can reach out for that bit of assistance.

Niteline’s number is Freephone 1800 793 793.

Niteline is a voluntary student-run organisation that operates a telephone listening, information service and online listening for students.

Niteline is totally committed to confidentiality and is here to listen and provide support, whatever your situation.

Callers can talk about anything that is on their minds, be it personal, sexual or study-related. Put simply, if an issue is important to you, it’s important to us.
