Mind Matters: When Uni Students Return to Campus, How Will They Cope Mentally?

University students will return to campus for in-person classes from 15 October. For first-year students, they will face anxiety over settling in; while for returning students, there is the pressure of resuming studies after the long months of online learning. Will their mental and emotional wellbeing be prioritised in the race to catch up on studies? How should tertiary institutions manage students' mental health and ensure that mental health services are made available to those who need them?
