Handling Study Stress

At times students, particularly those in the senior years will be under stress due to their study loads.

To assist students in coping with this stress Headspace in Dubbo offers a free study stress advisory line that students can either call or access via the Headspace Dubbo Facebook page.

The Facebook page is www.facebook.com/headspacedubbo and the contact phone number for the centre is 02 5852 1900 (between 9am – 5pm Monday – Tuesday, 9am – 6pm Wednesday, 9am – 7pm Thursday and 9am – 2pm Fridays). 

This is a great service offered for students and if they are feeling stressed about their study load I encourage them to give the Headspace centre a call.
