Counseling outreach brings mental health resources to you
College years can be some of the most formative. We are exposed to new, different experiences and we have the chance to make important decisions for ourselves. But college is also busy and stressful, and it is a particularly risky time for mental health.
Yet many students do not seek help for fear of being stigmatized. Some students hold on until things reach rock bottom. Healthy U, Healthy Me and Counseling Outreach Peer Education have teamed up to bring resources to the student body to help avoid that mental health breaking point.
The Counseling Center can be reached at any time of the day or night at 305-284-5511.
