Mental Health Need on Campus & How CSU's Counseling Center Supports Students
Mental Health Need on Campus: College students are struggling with increased rates of anxiety, depression, and thoughts of suicide that affect their ability to study. A recent study showed that 79% of college students endorsed a moderate or high level of stress in the last 30 days. And, 40% of students surveyed endorsed having thought about suicide in the last year. The stress and grief of the COVID-19 pandemic have also increased the need for mental health services, with students reporting increased academic distress, family distress, social anxiety, and disordered eating.
How CSU's Counseling Center Supports Students: Our mission is to support and empower our diverse student community through the provision of psychological services. Our services are confidential and include individual counseling, couple's counseling, group counseling, psychiatry, case management, crisis intervention, consultation, and referrals. These services are designed to help students cultivate their strengths and overcome obstacles to obtain their personal, academic, and career goals. Likewise, we collaborate closely with our university and community partners to foster the personal, social, and academic well-being of our students and the university community.
