About Mind The Gap Graduates
Mind The Gap is a blog that aims to help young adults bridge the gap between education into adult life.
It’s been found that 49% of graduates struggle with mental health problems in the year after leaving university. So this site has been created to help this percentage, and others struggling, to not feel alone.
I’m Maddie, a 21-year old graduate living in London and I set up this blog as I had no idea what I was doing, and still don’t, in adult life. Growing up we were told about work and that we would have time for ourselves, but no one gave you the answers to all the other bits, like how do I know what career I want, or how do I make sure I get that perfect work-life balance? So that’s what I’m trying to do, help out those people that are feeling pretty unsure about things now they’re an ‘adult’.
