Son struggling with uni....

My 19yr old son started uni recently.
We decided that he'd stay quite local as he suffers with depression and anxiety. This way we could get to him quickly if he needed us.

He had another "episode" recently and has been put on medication (we have another couple of weeks before we'll see any kind of difference) and was advised to seek help from the uni support services (mental health team said they couldn't do more as he'd only just started his meds but gave us a list of numbers we could call if needed).

Anyway he's now talking about leaving uni (not sure if this is a permanent thing or a gap year scenario) but I don't know where we stand with his accommodation and student finance.

This is yey another thing that will worry and stress him so I'm trying to find out as much as I can so when we meet to talk I can help him make informed decisions.

Anyone else been in this situation?
