We all have mental health
The transition from Secondary to Higher Education and our time at university will pose many challenges for all of us in different ways, whether it be living away from family for the first time or managing your time effectively to establish a work-life balance.
Recognising when you might be going through a time of difficulty and knowing when and how to act upon this can seem impossible and often too easy to put-off. Therefore, it is vital to highlight the importance of mental health and where to go for help and guidance.

Personal time management planner
As a student, it is often difficult to manage both your academic and personal lives. As such, effective time management is a skill which we all must strive to develop.
Warwick Engineering Society has created a personal planner which you can use to manage your time more effectively, including weekly and monthly planners and a deadline tracker.
Remember, it’s okay not to be okay
If you find yourself or others in need of help, do not be afraid to seek help and guidance.
