University is an exciting time in young person’s life but it can also be a challenging time due to the historic background of our country and other factors. Some of the challenging factors may include but not limited to the following:

-Peer pressure
-Less sleep
-Lack of resources

– Family problems
– Low self esteem
– Relationship issues
– Loss and bereavement

If you feel sad, or “down” that does not necessarily mean that you are suffering from depression. However, if your sleep is disturbed and are not interested in things that you normally enjoy and you feel sad, helpless, hopeless, irritable with negative energy for two weeks or more, you might be suffering from depression. You are not alone; at GradesandLevelsSA we have identified depression as a common health problem for university, TVET college students and matriculants. We provide free telephonic counselling to students; feel free to get help from our highly trained team of professionals by filling the form below:
