Health and Well-being in Graduate School: Preventing Burnout


Health and well-being constitute critical components of graduate students’ success and potential issues like burnout, chronic stress, depression, fatigue, and imposter syndrome threaten to undermine such success. In turn, this chapter provides strategies on how students can manage their health and well-being, including advice for those who are already struggling and those seeking to prevent these issues arising. This manuscript is part of Strategies for Navigating Graduate School and Beyond, a forthcoming volume for those interested in pursuing graduate education in political science (Fall 2022 publication).
