Your mental health is important. However, many students may be placing their own well-being on the back burner in order to deal with it after exams. This may be due to anxiety and stress because of studying (or overstudying). Unfortunately, this may result in academic burnout, which is dangerous and can become the opposite of productivity. So make sure you utilize the mental health resources at the University of Saskatchewan if they will benefit you! 

NOTE: Due to COVID, these facilities may not be operating on normal hours or they may require bookings and appointments. Please contact them ahead of time and be patient. Thank you.
