The Struggle Is Real: Surviving University

Managing Academic Stress

It’s that time of year again. Reading Week is quickly approaching and many university students are feeling overwhelmed by readings, assignments and essays that seem to be never ending. Given the unmanageable workload and pressure of tight deadlines, it’s no wonder students feel anxious and stressed out. You’re not alone!

Many students manage to improve their grades and succeed in their studies. They learn how to identify and address their problems and take those skills with them beyond the classroom. You can too!

You’re invited to a free workshop that I’m hosting at the University of Toronto on November 24, 2017 titled “The Struggle is Real: Surviving University.” The goals of this workshop are to increase awareness and understanding of school-related and non-school related stress and to provide psychoeducation regarding anxiety and stress. Participants will learn various coping mechanisms so they can live a more balanced lifestyle. In a safe and supportive environment, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss their own experiences of anxiety and how it manifests—cognitively, emotionally, and physically.

As we come closer to the end of the semester, it’s a great time to learn some new coping skills and have meaningful conversations with your peers. RSVP and get your free ticket. I hope to see you there!
