Mental wellness includes balancing our thoughts, emotions, physical and spiritual selves. Counseling assists with achieving balance as a college student juggles academics, work, relationships and self-care. Currently, requests for counseling are additionally reporting struggles with the symptoms of trauma and stress resulting from the current pandemic and/or the ongoing trauma of racial injustice.
