Post-secondary life can be stressful. Maybe you’re fresh out of high school or coming back after a break. Maybe you’re a long way from home, trying to balance studying, working, finances and having a social life too. No matter your situation, it probably feels overwhelming at times.
The silver lining: you’re not alone.
The Government of BC has a free and confidential support service available to all students registered in a BC post-secondary institution.
