We all deal with a variety of issues on a day to day basis. No matter what the issue, whether you are worried about your family or friends, are stressed about finances or academics, or not sure what is putting you in a “funk,” it is important to make sure that you are mentally and emotionally healthy. Your mental health can affect other areas of your life and can also affect other people in your life. If you are struggling with any issue, it is important to talk to someone about it – that person could be a family member, friend, advisor, or professor. However, there are also other options at K-State, such as counseling, that can provide you with support.
Having a hard time adjusting on campus? Problems dealing with stress, family, relationships, alcohol, eating disorders, or other issues? Counseling services provides short-term, focused counseling in the areas of: decision-making, crisis intervention, solution, adjustment, and matters of personal concern. They also assist in identifying and referring additional resources on campus and in the community. Check out their website resource page for self-help tips. Also, the Alcohol and Other Drug Education office supports access to personal assessment on alcohol and other drug use.Hide Description
