Counseling for College Students. – There is no doubt that college is stressful. In addition to the actual classes and schoolwork students must complete, there are other life challenges that present themselves during this time. For many college students it is their first time living away from home, managing their own money, creating new social groups, figuring out who they are, and deciding what they want to do with the rest of their lives. When these stressors all occur at the same time, it can feel incredibly overwhelming.

What is “typical” college-aged stress? – A little stress is normal and can even motivate students to study a little harder, reach out to a new friend, or pick up a part-time job. However, too much stress can lead to adverse effects like trouble sleeping, getting sick often, headaches/stomach aches, change in eating habits, social isolation, and feeling anxious or depressed are all common signs and symptoms of too much stress. When these symptoms begin to disrupt students’ mental health, it’s time to seek treatment.
