Depressed about dating prospects
A spokesperson for the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) stressed that these feelings are extremely common and nothing to be scared or ashamed of; but that it ‘doesn’t mean you have to put up with them’.
Post-university depression is nothing like the aftermath of a party. I spoke to 40 current students and recent graduates, and 95 per cent believed that post-university depression was very much a real thing, with a further 87 per cent saying that there should be more exposure on it.
Studying for a degree brings its own stresses, and students should not be disheartened or discouraged by anyone who devalues what they are doing; it should be acknowledged that help is within reach if the post-university prospects do not exceed or live up to expectations that students may have for their futures.
In the few months, or weeks in some cases, between exam period to graduation date, and graduation ceremony to ‘real world’, a lot is expected to change in a short period of time, and the transition is not always an easy one.
If this does not help, then you are advised to seek professional help.
