We know that graduate school can be life changing and full of exciting discoveries. However rewarding, we know it can be challenging to balance your personal lives, coursework, research, grading and endless other responsibilities. We encourage you to take a moment, pause and reflect on your well-being and take note of the various mental health resources available to help you cope with any challenges that may arise.
