Speak UP!

 

This week, we are emphasizing Mental Heath Awareness Week. We wanted to highlight important facts surrounding mental health and the impact it can have on your student and family. 

 

Currently, there is a constant fight to diminish the negative stigma mental health has on society. Further, there are some individuals who will not seek treatment due to worry, fear, or other negative repercussions. When one is in college, there might be even more obstacles that one has to face, and therefore, we want you and your student fully prepared to know what to do and where to go if this concern arises. 

 

 

 

First and foremost: SPEAK UP! Please do not suffer in silence. While we all experience different emotions at different seasons in our life, If you are experiencing increased feelings of sadness, stress, or worry, reach out to someone who you trust. There are plenty of amazing professionals in this community who are willing to help and lend a listening ear.
