Students, whether they are in school, college or university, face many concerns and challenges during their years of study. The pressure to perform well academically is already a daunting challenge, but it is compounded by other challenges such as maintaining healthy social relationships, doing group projects, holding down a part-time job, learning how to live independently, and so on.
