October is the mid-term examination month of the University of Macau. It is the period for many students, especially freshmen to feel stressed, anxious, and even depressed while facing university exam. MLC HA was very lucky to invite Mr. Sam Lei, counsellor from UM SAO Student Counselling Section to give a talk on beating exam stress. Over 60 students participated in the talk, indicating their interest in this topic. During the talk, Mr. Lei split the students into groups and asked them to share their opinions about stress. He introduced how stress was formed in a scientific way and taught students the ways to deal with and relieve stress.
Participants gained a lot of beneficial knowledge about dealing with stress from this talk. Students wish that RC could collaborate with Student Counselling Section to organize more activities related to mental health in the future so that students can live and learn happily in their busy university life.
