Your opinion is important to us.  If you have comment or suggestion, please feel free to contact me. In order for learning to take place in our classrooms and for goals to be accomplished, we need to acknowledge the fact that many of our students face personal and health issues that obstruct their learning. Emotional distress is not a weakness, hiding it is.

The information provided below offers concrete suggestions for helping emotionally distressed students connect with available college and community resources. When you experience student behavior that causes you concern for their well-being, I encourage you to use the suggestions on this website and refer the student to the Student Health Center Mental Health Counselor for psychological and Mental Health Counseling.
