Study Abroad with DepressionWatch
A friend of mine is struggling with depression and mood disorder. She's currently studying abroad at a famous university, but everyday she feels depressed and anxious about the exams at that famous university. I think that she can do the exams well, but they can stress her out since this is a top university, and she tends to get overworried. When she feels ok, she says that she wants to finish her study at that university, but when she's in a depressive mood, she'll say that she doesn't really like what she's studying at that university, and she wants to go home to be with her family.
She's easily stressed out and feel depressed. She's currently taking medications for depression but even with it, her university study still stresses her out and make her feel depressed.
Do you think that she should:
1/ continue her study at that famous university
2/ transfer to a less famous university and with easier assessment
3/ or go back to live with her family in her home country?
Thank you very much.
