Why More And More College Students Are Finding Mental Health Support Online
from Deseret News
From Jan. 19:
For many students, stress is simply part of college life — as unavoidable as tuition, fees and final exams. And the number of students flooding university counseling centers suggest stress levels on campuses may be rising. Izzy Gerard, a sophomore at the University of Puget Sound, a small liberal arts college in Tacoma, Washington, has observed this firsthand. She's in charge of outreach at her campus counseling center and has noticed more and more students visiting the center since she started her job last August. Although walk-in appointments are available for several hours each weekday, not everyone can be seen during those times, so for some, the wait to see a counselor can be over a month.
