An information session held by Headspace is aimed at tackling study and exam stress.
Centre manager Wayne Frost said exams created a major stress for young people, but there were ways of getting through it.
"Things get very challenging at this time of year for students," he said.
"It's tense; when you're studying for exams or working on final assignments you need to be able to think and remember a lot of information and that's hard enough at the best of times.
"The pressure to do well can give us anxiety. A certain amount of anxiety is okay and it can help us perform, but we can experience more than we need, and it becomes unhelpful. Luckily there are things you can do to keep it in check."
Topics such as how minds and bodies react to high-stress situations, tips for keeping anxiety in check, and how to help someone who's struggling will be covered. The session is aimed at encouraging healthy routines around sleep, exercise, and food, but will also cover ways students can organise themselves and get the best possible outcomes for themselves.
The free information session will take place at the Tailrace Centre from 7pm on Tuesday, October 29.
