Travelling light: looking after your mental health and wellbeing on your year abroad

We know that studying abroad can be an incredibly rewarding experience, but what do you do if you start to struggle while you're away?

As part of the University of Edinburgh's Mental Health and Wellbeing Week (13th-17th November 2017), we'll be focusing on looking after your mental health and wellbeing during this year of great change and great opportunity, which forms an important part of many undergraduate degrees in our School.

The one-hour session will be led by Georgie Harris, a fourth year student in the School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC) who has recently returned from her year abroad in Madrid and is this year’s Undergraduate School Representative for LLC.

As well as group discussion of the challenges you might face, we’ll also be focusing on sources of help (including useful websites), and tips/tricks from people who’ve been there, done that.

You don't have to book for this event. Just turn up and join the conversation.
