Student Support Services
Many people experience emotional and psychological difficulties at some stage in their lives. Good mental health and wellbeing is a valuable support when faced with the kind of difficulties that many students in higher education encounter, such as financial concerns and managing workload or concurrent deadlines. UCD seeks to ensure that the promotion of mental health and wellbeing is part of the UCD Student Experience.
