Address your mental health

Around six in 10 students say their attendance at lectures is affected by mental health, said the Union of Students in Ireland.

The advice is to take time out - go for walk or jog.

Ask what is the worst that can happen? Placing the palm of your hand on your stomach and breathing slowly and deeply (no more than 12 breaths a minute) helps soothe the body.

Talk about it - sharing worries takes away a lot of their scariness. If you can't talk to a friend or family member, call a helpline such as the Samaritans (116 123 - open 24 hours a day) for free.

Reward yourself - give yourself a treat.
