"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about." – John Watson

Your time at college has the possibility of being the best time of your life. It can also be the scariest. It might be the first time you have the freedom to make your own decisions. That freedom is exciting – but it can also mean a lot of stress and anxiety.

Everyone gets stressed out by school – it's normal, actually. But each of us manages stress differently. For some, it can feel like it's too much to handle. If you're feeling this way, know you're not alone. And know we're here to help.

  • Difficulty adjusting to college (hey, it's a big change!)
  • Anxiety related to school work and tests
  • Anxiety related to meeting new people
  • Adjustment issues of international students
  • Balancing demands of school, family, relationships and work
  • Difficulty with time management
  • Having a friend in distress
  • Grief and loss
  • Depressed moods and mood swings
  • Thoughts of self-harm/self-harming behaviors
  • Anger management and conflict resolution
  • Poor concentration
  • Low motivation
  • Family issues
  • Alcohol and other drug use, abuse and other addictive behaviors
  • Problems associated with eating and maintaining a healthy body image
  • Questions about sexuality
  • Dating and relationship issues
  • Date rape and other sexual assault trauma

If you're having these common concerns – or feel the need to talk – come see us. If you're a current student, you can schedule an appointment by calling 636-922-8536.

One more thing: Just to be clear, the mental health counselor is not an academic advisor. Check out our Academic Advising page for information on meeting with an advisor.
