Culture Shock




Questions to consider:
  • What are some coping strategies or techniques that I can employ that would help me in transitioning to living in a new country and culture?
  • How transparent am I willing to be with support staff or instructors in my host country regarding my mental health?
  • What support or resources does my study abroad partner program or host university have for students (counseling and mental health professionals on staff, - contacts in the local community, group therapy options for students, etc.)?
