Students at a leading university have been told to shout ‘arrrrgghh’ to help them deal with stress.

Among the top tips for managing stress, students were told they can release tension by simply ‘shouting arrrrgghh’.

The advice says: ‘High levels of stress can cause an excessive production of adrenaline resulting in headaches, racing heart, fatigue, irritability and sleeping problems.

‘Remember – it’s perfectly normal to be a bit anxious, but if it’s making you ill then there are people you can talk to for support.’

As well as screaming, the tips include relaxation and meditation, talking to friends and family, exercising and effective time management.

Since October 2016, 12 students have tragically taken their own lives while studying at the Russell Group university.

English student Ben Murray, 19, physics student Natasha Abrahart, 20, electrical and engineering student Alex Elsmore and Justin Cheng, studying law, all took their own lives last academic year.

Also among those to tragically commit suicide have been Elsa Scaburri, 21, Daniel Green, 18, and 19-year-old Miranda Williams.

Speaking about the stress coping advice, a Bristol SU spokesman said: ‘There are some simple measures relating to coping with stress during exam periods on our website.

‘We know that not all the suggestions will feel right for everyone.

‘If any student feels they – or a friend – need help or support, we always encourage them to contact the University’s support services.’
