Mental Health Awareness Week coming up

Counseling, disability support, and student wellness (CDSW) reminds you that Mental Health Awareness Week will be observed next week, from Monday, Feb. 20, through Friday, Feb. 24. Join CDSW for these events:

Please refer distressed students to CDSW. The American Psychological Association reports that more than 40 percent of college students experience anxiety and seek help. Depression follows as a leading cause of distress. CDSW counselors can teach students how to manage upsetting feelings and succeed academically. Learn  more at http://counsel.mst.edu.
