Mental Health and Wellbeing

COVID-19 is causing uncertainty for young people. It is normal in challenging circumstances to feel sad, worried, confused, scared or angry. If you are concerned about changes in your behaviour or you are struggling with your response, it is ok to ask for support. Seeking help will not affect your enrolment or your visa.
