ME, MYSELF & I

Hey there! Let’s begin with the basics of me. My name is Caitlin Jones, and I have been growing up in a country town in Victoria, Australia for the past 20 years of my life. At the moment I am studying a Bachelor of Media and Communication majoring in Social Media; ironic, I know. And when I finish with that accomplishment, I am wanting to complete a PhD in the same field, as I am in love with learning in the media and communication area; again, ironic, I know. Oh and if you haven’t noticed already, I suffer from mental illnesses, in particular, anxiety and depression. You can read my blog posts to get the update on that!

University & Mental Health: 70% of Students Affected

“A substantial two-thirds (67.3%) of students rated their mental health as only fair or poor.” When you combine the elements of higher education, moving out of home, financial independence, transitioning from a routine that one has been living in for 12/18 years of their life, and figuring out everything in between; it’s no surprise the majority…
