Other Wellness Resources
Below are additional resources available to students to help support mental wellness. These can be used alone to enhance your mental health self-care or in conjunction with counseling services.
The Counseling Center regularly offers workshops that give you powerful tools to develop resiliency and goal achievement skills. Topics include overcoming perfectionism, managing time, overcoming difficult emotions, improving focus, and using mindfulness to reduce stress and anxiety. For more information, visit the Counseling Center’s website.
This interactive, online training allows you to practice what you would say if you are concerned about a friend or classmate who is showing signs of mental distress. It then provides resources you can connect them to for help. To access this training, visit the Counseling Center’s website.
These brief, online screenings assess for concerns such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, substance misuse, and eating disorders. The screenings can be a good first step to determine if counseling may be something to consider. To access this training, visit the Counseling Center’s website.
