#47 Graduate Student Mental Health

Angali, MSc student at the Institute of Medical Science, University of Toronto


September 19, 2018

One in four people will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. This is particularly true among graduate students, who recent studies suggest, are at an increased risk for depression and anxiety. In this episode, you'll hear the voices of a group of graduate students across Toronto as they share their stories and struggles with mental illness. Alongside each story, you'll hear about the resources and coping strategies that allowed them to better manage their mental health. Check out our website for featured guest names and all the great resources they share in the episode!
