Ngā Anipā | Anxiety & Stress

Anxiety and stress are both normal human emotions that we will experience during our lives. Feelings of anxiety occur when we are faced with uncertainty or threat. Many of us may associate anxiety with feelings of worry, fear and nervousness.  Similar to anxiety, feelings of stress can occur when we feel threatened or experience an increase in demand. This triggers our bodies fight, flight or freeze response, which is great in an emergency but not so much when this is a regular occurrence. When experienced at high levels for long periods both anxiety and stress can lead to feelings of distress and can increase the likelihood of us becoming unwell.

If you are concerned about yourself please get in touch with your GP or alternatively you can speak with a Student Care advisor who will help you to identify appropriate supports and refer on as needed.
