Your mental health and wellbeing is influenced by many factors.
An obvious factor for students is how well their studies are coming along.
Doing well at your studies ▶ mental health boost 🥳
Not doing so well at your studies ▶ mental health drops 😢
With this in mind, one of the simplest investments you can make in your mental health is to improve your academic performance.
At Flinders, the main people to help with this are the Student Learning Support Services (SLSS). They run a range of programs and provide a range of resources targeted specifically at improving your academic performance.
Here’s a few key ones:
Online resources and study guides – “The Student Learning Support Service (SLSS) provide a range of study guides designed to help you with the necessary skills and work for your University studies”. Covers writing, english language, general study resources, mathematics and referencing.
Extended consultations with learning advisors – ask your topic coordinator and they can refer you for a 1-hour focused session on a particular academic skill. They need to email email@example.com with your details to request the consultation.
