We all experience problems in our lives. Sometimes those are situational and quickly resolved. Sometimes they can be more serious and difficult to handle. Counseling Services helps students with a wide range of mental health concerns. If you or someone you know is stressed by life circumstances, experiencing mental health symptoms, or have any thoughts of suicide, please talk to a caring professional.

However, keep in mind that the mere absence of mental health concerns does not equal positive mental health and wellness. There is a lot we can do to accentuate the positive and buffer ourselves from depression and other forms of mental concerns.

Emotional, mental, and social health often cannot be separated. They each contribute greatly to our overall well-being. Emotional health emphasizes an awareness and acceptance of one’s thoughts and feelings. Social health encompasses connecting with community, family, friends, and co-workers in ways that enrich your life and the lives of those around you.
