Managing Fatigue in College

Front image of the placement booklet - click to download

College life for both staff and students can be fast paced, challenging, and stressful, as a result, it can often lead to individuals experiencing high levels of fatigue. A study carried out by Darcy, Roe, McKnight and Nolan (2013) found that students with disabilities such as physical or sensory disabilities, medical conditions or illnesses, and mental health difficulties may experience higher levels of fatigue compared to the general student population. Consequently, as a result of this research, the Unilink Service, in collaboration with the Disability Service in Trinity College Dublin has developed an interactive book to support you in understanding fatigue and to develop practical strategies to manage your fatigue.

The book is fully interactive, you can therefore type in information relevant to you; in order to do so, please click on this link or on the book icon on the right, to firstly download it to your computer desktop and open using adobe acrobat before you start work on the ‘Thinking Activities’ which will help you develop the practical and easy to use strategies to manage your fatigue.
