WHAT IS A PROBLEM?
Many people struggle with problems and have learned that you keep things to yourself and don’t complain; or you express it over and over–wearing out your friends;
OR have the belief that counseling indicates a weakness.
But it’s actually one of the signs of intelligence to explore a solution to a problem with someone else.
We all go through transformation; some are more difficult than others.
We believe that in every crisis, there are two events happening: A perceived danger or threat; and an opportunity to learn and grow from the experience.

MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES ON CAMPUS
Today’s students face increasing economic, academic and social pressures, which can lead to emotional distress, depression, anxiety, and even thoughts of suicide. These conditions may also compromise students’ academic achievements affecting their ability to stay in school.
