Studying can, at times, be challenging or you may face other difficulties in your life that impact on your studies. It’s important to take care of your mental health and the OU is committed to supporting you in doing this.
If you have a mental health difficulty, or are concerned about how studying could impact on your mental wellbeing take a look at. There is a useful booklet with tips for managing study and staying mentally healthy and information on disclosing mental health difficulties and support you may benefit from.
You also might be interested in exploring some resources we have collated on wellbeing and mindfulness. This includes details of how to access Big White Wall, a free mental health and wellbeing support service. Perhaps bookmark this page so you can refer back if you find you need some support.
Remember, if things do get too much during your studies, you can always talk to your tutor or SST.
