Graduate school can be a challenge to your mental health. Between long hours, competing priorities, and processing a wealth of new information, your brain is being put to the test.
Plus, obligations to your graduate program likely are not the only stressor you’re dealing with while pursuing a graduate degree. You may encounter other personal and family challenges during your time in grad school. Changes beyond your control--related to the pandemic, natural disasters, and the impacts of racism and inequity, for example--can be significant sources of stress.
