In this case, sharing your concerns with others can help you! It often gives relief and allows you to look for solutions together. You can also share your concerns with your study adviser

Learn how to deal with stress, so it becomes more manageable and less overwhelming? Sign up for the stress management workshop, developed by our student psychologists.

Feeling Lonely?

Want to help someone?

Choose a time/place where you can talk openly and easily, without getting interrupted and ask how things are going and offer a listening ear. Let them know that you’re there for them and that these feelings are allowed to be there. Ask what you can do to help and seek help together if necessary.

To learn how to best help your friends, the psychologists of the UT have also set up a “Look after your friendtraining in collaboration with the Student Union. For more information or to sign up, visit the website!
