Mental Health Issues
There are times when you feel that your student may be struggling and he/she may not share what is happening, perhaps he/she is calling more often, or not at all. Concerned about symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress management, substance abuse, or homesickness? Maybe he/she is sleeping all of the time or is always in he/she room “studying” when you ask what is happening. Adjusting to life in college presents challenges for many students, how your student handles those challenges is important. If you are concerned about a change in behavior or attitude, encourage your student to contact Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at PUSH. The mental health therapy staff at CAPS is available to help students as they adjust to the challenges of their new life.
CAPS staff is trained specifically in college student mental health, and provides a wide range of services, from emergency assessment and intervention, to various modalities of therapy for a large range of mental health concerns and diagnostic categories, to services aimed at building and enhancing skills for growth and thriving. Please have your son or daughter contact us at (765) 494-6995; we’d be happy to speak with them and let them know how we can help.
