Emotional Health Public Lecture – How to deal with the stress of the HSC
With final exams and the HSC looming, it’s understandable if students are feeling a little overwhelmed.
Uni is hugely exciting, but it can also be challenging, especially when you’re a new student. Students may find themselves tempted to over indulge in alcohol when celebrating successes or during stressful periods. But doing so may be risky. Because we want your students to succeed at uni, we’ve sought the expert advice of leaders in emotional health from our Centre for Emotional Health. Such advice allows us to equip students and those close to them, with the tools they need to make sure they’re managing stress productively and that they have a healthy relationship with alcohol if they choose to drink.
Students, their families and teachers can join us to hear from Macquarie’s Associate Professor Melissa Norberg and Associate Professor Viviana Wuthrich.
