University mental-health resources strained under increased need


University mental-health resources strained under increased need.

Here is an article from the USA Today that discusses the over-burdened demand for mental health services on campuses. If your campus services are busy, keep trying to get an appointment or seek guidance on other resources in your area. We are all responsible for our own care, but we need to ask and be persistent (sometimes) in order to get it.

According to the article, “approximately 2.2 million students across the country sought professional counseling assistance last year. The annual survey included 293 counseling centers, which represent 2.7 million students who are eligible for counseling services at their institutions.” The good news is that people are seeking help – the bad news is it can take time to get it.
