Mental Health Abroad

Studying abroad is a new experience and it is common to have feelings of stress and anxiety. You will likely have a sense of ambiguity and experience unexpected events and circumstances which can add to the stress level. You can prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for this experience:

  • Review information from Mobility International on how to prepare to go abroad with a mental health condition.
  • Learn how to prepare yourself for the experience.
  • Read about experiences of other students. It is important to understand that you will have challenging days while abroad and this is completely normal. It can help you to feel less alone if you recognize that other students have felt the same way.
