"I don’t think I have good mental health. I have mood swings. Sometimes I feel I am going through some sort of mental disorder, like schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Other times I feel that I am good and that I am doing good in this life. University has definitely made the mood swings worst. There is so much pressure on international students, especially if your family is not supporting you financially. I even discussed these things with my mum once, I told her I’d like to get help from a psychologist, and she said “no, this stuff is for mental people”.
