I'm an MA student and writer currently working on a piece about mental health support for postgraduate students (master's, phd etc) and wanted to get some opinions from current or ex-postgrad students about their experience getting support for stress, anxiety, depression or any other mental health related issue at uni.
Have you sought help from your uni for this kind of thing? What was your experience like? What do you think universities could do more to help the unique needs of postgrad students (less contact hours, intense workload, different experience of social life than undergrad, lots of independent work etc)?
My initial assumption is that, whilst lots of unis/courses have wellbeing provisions in place for postgrad students, more could be done to help postgrad students specifically.
Would be great to hear anyone's thoughts!
