Kelly, Loyalist College

"After barely graduating high school due to mental health problems the first year of college was extremely rough. I got the courage and motivation to return for my second and final year. I was just starting to get into the semester schedule and my mental health was good. Because of this strike I've lost motivation to do my homework and return to school. My mental health has declined due to the strike and my anxiety is extremely high because of not knowing what is going on. I reside away from home so I pay rent to attend school and cannot afford to pay for it if I'm not in school."
