Hi all,
I’m going into my 2nd year at the university of leeds after a troubling first year which was spent mostly at home due to some mental health issues such as depression and social anxiety. I’ve since been through therapy and I’m much better now, but as a result, I did not manage to make many friends last year (I’m moving into a house with 2 school friends and 2 others and these are the only people I know). I’m just wondering if anyone is/was in the same boat and how they managed to make good friends in later years, and if they had any advice for me, especially advice on how to make friends at lectures (there were no inperson ones last year) etc.

Hello!

I am glad to hear that you are in a better position!

I am also sure that you cannot wait to go to 1:1 and in-person teaching, a very exciting time for you. However, I also know that this may feel a little daunting - hopefully your University holds fresher fayres which you can still attend which may be a good idea to join clubs and societies.

Try your best to put yourself out there & I am sure your cohort and peers are in a similar position and are thriving to have a good social life again!

Dylan :thumbsup:
