Why Students Seek Help


Why students seek helpWhy do students seek counseling at C&DS?

Students may seek help for a variety of personal concerns and other emotional issues. Sometimes life events can be overwhelming. C&DS can be a good resource to help students cope and build resilience.

Common Reasons

  • Transition to college and academic concerns
  • Feeling stressed or anxious
  • Feeling moody, irritable, depressed or hopeless
  • Expressing loneliness or grief
  • Relationship concerns
  • Difficulties with friends or roommate(s)
  • Concern about a friend’s mental health
  • Domestic or dating violence
  • Worry about a family problem
  • Experiencing problems with alcohol and/or drugs
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Eating disorders
  • Worry about life after graduation
  • Trouble coping with a traumatic event
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

Is my problem too small to talk about with a counselor?

Student concerns are important. Many students experience adjustment issues at some point during college and would benefit from meeting with a counselor. Often one or two consultations regarding situational concerns can make a big difference. Not all problems require ongoing counseling.

Disability Services

C&DS provides academic accommodations for students with disabilities. If you have a disability or suspect one exists, contact C&DS for an appointment. Community referrals for testing and treatment are available if needed.
