Advice on coping with
mental health and caring at University
from Young Adult Carer, Hannah
I find my mental health can deteriorate when I let work get on top of me so I find it is better for me to get the work done as and when I get it instead of leaving it to the last minute.
If I let it stress me out and get me down I find myself thinking that I’m not good enough for uni and I’m letting my family/myself down, which I know isn’t the case but it's easy to let it take over your head!
Connecting with the Young Adult Carer team has made such a difference and I do feel like speaking to someone, either at school, university or the doctors really makes all the difference. Let them know you're a carer and that your struggling and they can get you the help you need.
