When to Seek Professional Help for Your Student

 

It is difficult to watch your student struggle through any of the challenges that come with being in college. If you notice that your student is having difficulties, talk with them to see if it is something they can work through on their own and encourage them to utilize the campus resources.

You may notice a significant change in your student's mood, behavior, or routine. Many of these changes are a normal part of the developmental/growing up process. Sometimes when these changes are more dramatic, it could be a sign of something more. If you are not sure, talk to your student to see what might be going on.

If you are still concerned about your student, encourage them to talk with someone at Counseling Services. We are here to help.
