Moving from school, college or university can feel like a massive change. The style of learning is likely to feel quite different. You’re in unfamiliar settings with unfamiliar systems and staff. Often you have to make new friends and start a completely new social life.
Life changes like this can have a big impact on mental health and emotional wellbeing. It’s really important to plan ahead, and to stay connected to people who support you, and to access support services if needed.
Starting somewhere new won’t always be perfect but give it time. Be kind to yourself. Just remember this is a brilliant opportunity. It can be great fun meeting new people and learning new things about yourself.
