Mental Health Awareness Week 15-21 May 2023

User: DrHopeIsOutThere - 16 May 2023 08:29

Anxiety is the theme of Mental Health Awareness Week 2023 in the UK.

We have all been there.

I won't pretend to understand everyone's daily struggles but just know things will only get worse if you stay in your own head.

There are times you won't be okay and that's okay.

Talk to someone you trust, get off your computer, take a comfort break, call that friend up for a walk.

People around you might not understand the pressures of (post)PhD life but that's because they've never done one.

Anxiety is a natural response to the uncertain world around us.

How do you keep yourself right?
