Mental Health

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 popluation” (Evans et al., Nature Biotechnology 2015 36:  282-284).

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 (printed copies are avalable in our Mental Health Pamflet Stand at 411 Buller.
