The New Zealand Law Students Association have written and compiled this booklet with assistance from an experienced mental health professional.
Seamus Woods, NZLSA President 2013, writes:
This Guidebook responds to the rising tide of mental wellness difficulties being perceived among New Zealand’s law students. These difficulties include not only clinical mental health issues such as depression but also things like stress and anxiety. This Guidebook aims to bring the importance of mental wellness to law students’ attention, and to equip them with information and tips to cope with their studies....
I commend this Guidebook to any university student, whether or not they struggle with stress or mental difficulties, whether or not they think they ever would, and indeed whether or not they even study law. Always look after yourself, look after your mates, and never be afraid to ask for help.
