    Hi there,

    Firstly, have a look at Nicola from Student Minds' excellent advice on practical and emotional techniques to deal with a mental illness abroad, including talking to your home university, building strong social networks, engaging in activities that are good for your wellbeing and developing your psychological coping skills.

    I would also recommend going to see the doctor in Spain (you may even be able to track down an English-speaking/expat GP) - even if it sounds scary, they will be able to direct you towards a specialist, if you need it. 

    Thirdly, there are some great resources below

    I hope this helps and remember you can always come back and ask for more advice :)
