How to recognize behavioral health concerns and available campus resources.

Dangers of Mental Health Concerns

College is a difficult time for many students. It’s normal to feel stress. Stress can help motivate you to continue in moments when you feel overwhelmed. But when stress and anxiety go unmanaged, they can threaten your well-being and make it difficult to fulfill everyday responsibilities and tasks.

Possible Signals of Behavioral Health Issues

Learning how to recognize behaviors associated with severe anxiety and stress can help you know when to ask for help. Here are some common behavioral health issues:

  • Feeling more anxious or worried than usual
  • Experiencing sudden emotional outbursts
  • Feeling depressed or unhappy
  • Struggling to fall asleep at night or get up in the morning
  • Noticing weight or appetite changes
  • Being quiet or withdrawn
  • Feeling guilty or worthless
