Mental Health

Studying abroad is an amazing opportunity, and it also presents unique challenges. For many, studying abroad is a time of emotional highs and lows.

Changes in routine, food, time zones, and culture, combined with a change in environment and support network, affect everyone differently. Some people find that the changes lead to increased anxiety and stress. Others find that studying abroad exacerbates existing conditions.

Mental health support services vary by destination. Students are encouraged to discuss the advisability of studying abroad with their mental health professional. If you need mental health support on-site, GeoBlue and other international health insurance providers can help you identify resources in your country. Study abroad staff are also available to answer questions about mental health concerns and availability of support services. Please contact us with questions.
