Hey there, Redhawks! We know that college life comes with a rollercoaster of emotions, from the excitement of newfound freedom to the stress of balancing schoolwork and a social life. Here are some tips to help you manage your mental health in the midst of the college life chaos.
Make time for the people who make you feel like sunshine. Whether it's your roommate, classmates, or that one professor who always cracks a joke, surround yourself with positive vibes. Having a support system makes all the difference on the toughest days.
Feeling overwhelmed or down? That's okay! The Center for Behavioral Health and Accessibility at Southeast is here for students who want to talk or need assistance. Schedule your appointment by calling (573) 986-6191 or dropping by Crisp Hall 201, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
At The Counseling Center operated by the Department of Psychology, all sessions are free and confidential. Master's level practicum and internship students offer top-notch counseling services with supervision from a licensed faculty member. To make an appointment call (573) 651-5169 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't hesitate to reach out to a friend. They can be a great source of comfort and support when things get tough. Sharing your feelings can lighten the load and make you feel less alone.
Juggling school work and social life can be a real circus act. Make a to-do list and prioritize your tasks. Take one thing at a time, and don't forget to celebrate every small victory. You're doing great!
A little treat now and then can do wonders for your mood. Whether it's treating yourself to a cozy afternoon at a local coffee shop or snacking on your favorite dessert, remember to give yourself those well-deserved little rewards.
Redhawks, your mental health matters more than you know. Remember, it's okay not to be okay sometimes. You're never alone. There is strength in reaching out to a friend, counselor, or support group if you need a listening ear.
