Health Center Counseling

College can be an exciting time, but it can also be very challenging. Feeling pressure and stress can be normal and will pass with time but if you have been feeling sad, hopeless, anxious, or not yourself for two or more weeks, it may be time to meet with a counselor.

These feelings are more common than you think!
