Protecting your mental health: A practical guide for postgraduate research students in STEM

White curve

Postgraduate research students report concerns about anxiety at a significantly higher level than in undergraduates. Nature’s 2019 PhD Survey1 found over a third of respondents had sought help for anxiety or depression related to their studies, with individuals from minority groups more likely to experience mental ill-health.

This guide is designed for postgraduate research students to help you develop the skills to protect your mental wellbeing as you navigate your journey as a research student.

This guide was developed in partnership with Jonathan's Voice.
