Thoughts on Mental Health

In many ways, the pressures that face students at university are no different from those that face any young adult. As children you fantasise about what you are capable of; in young adulthood, living your own life, following your desires and exploring your limits become a real possibility. Yet, the struggle to actualise yourself as an adult can, in fact, be overwhelming. While university is sometimes viewed as an environment that will offer wonderful privileges and freedoms, for many students all this is overridden by internal pressures to deliver academically, socially, and developmentally as fully-functioning, independent and happy adults. Such pressures to deliver can lead to feelings of isolation, shame, guilt, denial or loss of control.

Perhaps more than any other loss, the death of a friend impacts on us differently depending on where we have got to in our own lives. For children, the death of a friend can sometimes be overwhelming, and it is hard for a child to know how to respond to such a loss. For young adults, the death may be the first, shocking confrontation with the possibility of your own death, and with the uncertainties and unfairness of life. Later in life, the death of a friend may signal the dwindling away of those who knew you as you were, and with whom you share memories and experiences. Whatever point in your life you are at, whether it comes as a first loss or the latest of many, the death of a friend brings you face to face with your own feelings about loss and mortality. These feelings can be difficult to look at or give voice to, and yet it represents one of your most important emotional tasks.
