You are not alone

Being a college student can be stressful. Adding a struggle with mental health can make school feel even more overwhelming, but we want you to know you are not alone.

 

According to the 2020 National College Health Assessment, almost half of students surveyed felt extremely lonely in the past 12 months, and over a quarter of students surveyed had been diagnosed with anxiety or depression. If you are feeling overwhelmed, lonely, depressed or exhausted, we encourage you to take advantage of the resources available to you.

 

As a part of the Cowboy Family, we have to look out for each other. Taking care of your own mental health is certainly important, but we ask you to do your part in looking out for fellow Cowboys. By becoming educated, trained and prepared, we can all work together to end the stigma surrounding mental health.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health crisis, use these resources to get help as soon as possible or call 911.
