College can be a stressful time of transitional changes. Students are concerned about academics, relationships, their sexuality, finances and dealing with the college experience on a daily basis. As a result, you may suffer from anxiety, depression, substance abuse and other mental health-related issues. Talking things over with a counselor gives you a chance to benefit from another viewpoint as you determine how you might want to approach a difficult or challenging situation.
