Watch: Mayo footballer Diarmuid O'Connor stars in thought-provoking mental health video

While most of us long for the days - and nights - of student life, there are still plenty of issues that can impact young people who are having the time of their lives.

This video made by DCU students, shows the different anxieties that can effect people in college, with last year's Young Footballer of the Year Diarmuid O'Connor making an appearance to highlight the pressure on young athletes.

O'Connor - who helped lead Mayo to the All-Ireland semi-final last season - and his colleagues show that the best thing to do if you have these problems is to talk to someone about them.

By talking to friends, the mental health society, the students union or the college counselling service, students can lessen the burden on themselves and work through their problems.
