    Student Minds have created a wonderful campaign to create a 'ripple' in mental health support awareness.

    Share your Ripple Tips with other students here- it just has to be something small things you do to cope with mental health/ depression.

    My Ripple: only make an effort with people who make you feel good about yourself

    What's your Ripple Tip?

    That's a really good one the making an effort with the people that make you feel good... Definitely avoid the rest when you're at your most vulnerable!

    Ripple Tip: Eat as well as is possible under your circumstances and try to do some exercise (in so far as your physical health permits of course)

    Agree with both of these!

    Mine: look after your health first and other things will follow. Ignoring it will only make things worse!

    ...I really need to learn to take my own advice

    Try not to apologise for everything. The law of averages mean that it's impossible that it's only ever you at fault.

    Ripple Tip: You are much more than just a brain. Look after your heart and body too. You'll rip yourself apart if you only allow your brain to develop while leaving the rest of yourself behind.

    I speak from personal experience. It's worth the time and effort.

    Ripple tip: Take the time to cry if you need it. Bottling it up doesn't help at all.

    Yes, but not to the point that we feel like everything we do is for someone else. Sometimes we have to come ahead of others
