Mental Health Awareness Month raises awareness on mental illnesses and strives to help reduce the stigma surrounding mental illnesses. Help us fight the mental illness stigma within our communities and college campuses, by encouraging mental health and wellness. Stigma and shame prevents people from seeking mental health support. No Stigma = No Shame, No Fear, No Silence!  #MHAM

Get Support at the Wellness Center           

Personal counseling

Personal, individual counseling offers a safe place to talk about what's on your mind and to get support to work through life's challenges.                                                                             

Support groups

Support groups are offered on different topics relevant to college students such as stress and time management, busy parents, anger management, and veterans issues. Check with your Wellness Center to see what is offered for each term.                                                                              

Stress and time management coaching

Being a college student is stressful. Wellness Center staff can help you develop a stress and time management plan and learn other personal organizational skills.                                                                             

Connect to Public Benefits & Community Resources

Many students are unaware that they qualify for various public assistance programs such as SNAP, subsidized health insurance, Medicaid, and emergency housing.  The Wellness Center can help you learn more about and how to apply for these and other programs and also assist you in connecting to low- or no-cost community based mental health and social services.
