University is killing my mental health

Before coming to uni I was so excited, I was ready for the next stage of my life. However, I have anxiety, this stopped me from going out for freshers week, so I started off with no friends and barely knowing my flatmates. When my course started all my lectureres were horrible, I have a chronic illness and they weren't supportive at all which hurt as I'm studying to be a nurse so all my lectureres are nurses. As the weeks went on everything got harder, my mental health declined even more to the point where I cry myself to sleep and now considering dropping out. I don't know what to do, I am not the same person as I was was before uni. I'm never happy and am so lost. I don't know what to do.

If you leave your course do you have any thoughts about what you would do instead?
Do you think moving to a different university would help? Or taking some time away and restarting your course at your current university next autumn?

Have you booked appointments with your university counselling services?

You have lots of choices available but it’s difficult when you’re unhappy to focus on what you want instead of what you don’t want.

I would always recommend that anyone considering dropping out should suspend their studies instead. That keeps your options open.

Try getting involved with a society of like minded people at your university, its a great way to make friends! From that point on, your experience at university should improve.

University isn't for everyone, if you aren't enjoying it then you cant force yourself to love it. I dropped out and haven't looked back since, there is plenty to do post university and so long as you have a plan of what to do (reapply to another course/university or start in full time employment), no one should question your decision. I went through a really useful company who helped me find work and they specialise in this kind of thing - Sikono Careers.
