Invite a Counseling Center’s Mental Health Ambassador into your classroom or club meeting!

Published September 2, 2017

As we all work together to break the stigma surrounding mental health & counseling!

 Why schedule an MHA presentation?

  •     One in four young adults between the ages of 18 & 24 have a diagnosable mental illness yet this age group shows the lowest rate of help seeking
  •     Mental health issues are a leading impediment to academic success
  •     Untreated mental illness in college students is associated with lower GPA & drop out
  •     Treatment is effective but shame & stigma interfere with access
  •     Our trained peers are the most effective means of encouraging our students to seek help

Its Real: College Students and Mental Health video coverWe are excited to offer a NEW program this year!
A short film featuring real stories and experiences of students. It’s Real that depression and other mental health conditions are real illnesses that can be managed through specific treatments and interventions. It encourages students to be mindful of the state of their mental health, to acknowledge and recognize when they are struggling, and to take steps to seek help.
