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.

You are not alone

We are here for you

According to the 2022 National College Health Assessment, almost half of students surveyed felt extremely lonely in the past 12 months, and about 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.
