The Counseling Center
The Feelin’ Good Workshops
The three workshops for April will offer attendees an opportunity to learn and practice self-compassion through skills building, understanding humanity, and developing mindful awareness with the Learning to Practice Self-Compassion workshop; next, participants will be introduced to the often neglected areas of overlap between psychology and mysticism/spirituality with the DIY Mysticism workshop; and finally, the Let's Get Out workshop will help explore the connection between positive mental health and being outdoors!
Group counseling is one of the services the Counseling Center offers to App State students. Our groups take many different forms to meet student needs. Some are focused on particular topics or communities, such as students who identify as LGBTQ+, students of color, and students with eating concerns. Some groups may meet for 1-2 months and others may last for an entire semester. Some require regular attendance while others are drop-in groups that you can attend as your schedule allows.Read more
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
We 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.
The staff of the Counseling & Psychological Services Center is committed to the valuing of diversity in all of its forms. All are welcome, respected, and appreciated here.
We live in a diverse world consisting of many groups of people who have been de-valued and discriminated against based on such characteristics as race, ethnicity, cultural background, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical and mental abilities, religious beliefs, and socioeconomic status. We believe that such prejudice and discrimination is detrimental to those who are targets, those who target, and the world in general.
