Mental health resources are a tap away

Stress levels are rising as exams approach.

There are a variety of websites and apps that will assist in students’ mental health and wellness throughout the school year and with exams approaching, stress levels are rising across the campuses of Humber College and the University of Guelph-Humber.

Last Saturday was International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day and it was designated to those who have lost individuals to suicide. It was also a day to take a moment to realize the individuals that have attempted suicide in their life, who may have committed suicide and many whom have thoughts about suicide.

Suicide is a topic that is rarely approached due to the stigma around mental health and the lack of knowledge that society may have.

The Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre, or SWAC, provided The Avro Post with a list of websites and apps that students can have access to on their own time.

Crisis and general support consists of The Lifeline, which is an app that provides you with a good amount of numbers to call or websites to attend, 7 Cups, a website and app that provides you access to online listeners and therapists. As a warning, 7 Cups may be triggering to some because the listeners are not professionally trained.

Be Safe: You deserve help is also another app option.

When depression and mood support is required, Stigma is an option that Android users can use, Intellicare, an app that consists of 12 mini apps may come to benefit, and there are mood trackers like Mind your Mood, Youper or Emoods Mood Tracker.

Anxiety can be managed through the support of apps such as: Stop, Breathe & Think, Self-Help for Anxiety, Mindshift and B2R – Breathe to Relax. One app that can support both depression and anxiety is Sanvello.

For stress management, there are apps like Healthy Minds, Happify, Headspace (for students there is a subscription that only costs $10 a year) and Calm.

The first semester of a long academic year is coming to a close, but there are supports available for the inevitable stress that comes with it. ■
