Stress and Mental Health Information


Learn Psychology.org
Learn Psychology.org
Psychology is the scientific study of people, the mind and behavior. While some psychologists choose to focus on research, others choose to focus their careers on applied psychology and working directly with people and communities. Its near universal application -- from counseling and relationships to advertising and business -- makes psychology one of the most versatile and valuable majors in all of higher education. Explore degree programs, career paths, expert resources, and organizations across the country that actively hire today's students of the psyche.

Student Guide to Surviving Stress
Learn Psychology.org
Feelings of stress and anxiety are a part of life. Some levels of stress can actually be good for us, as the right kind
of stress encourages us toward change and growth. However, when stress and anxiety exist for an extended
period of time, they can become a burden or even a health risk. This guidebook will help you recognize and
understand feelings of stress and anxiety and learn how to manage them so that they don’t become overwhelming.

Student Suicide
Learn Psychology.org
People contemplating suicide or experiencing the depths of a severe depression need to know they are not alone. From teenagers to college students, LGBT to the elderly, people struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts need options, reassurance, hope and help.

Student Addiction on campus
Learn Psychology.org
The resources provides below can help you learn more about addiction and substance abuse as well as find treatment and help. Each college or university will likely have a student health clinic to provide an initial
consultation for addiction, as well as the ability to refer the student to appropriate help. Most if not all colleges
and universities will also have a student help line that answers questions and provides advice for those dealing
with addiction, and many colleges will have a counseling and psychological services department or division to
help students who are concerned about addictions or abuse.

Student eating disorder
Learn Psychology.org
Eating disorders are often misunderstood, sometimes misdiagnosed, and might be kept under wraps so well
that by the time the symptoms are evident, the person suffering has already experienced irreversible physical damage. This in-depth guide explains what eating disorders are, how to spot the signs, the impact of the most common issues, and what treatments are available for those who suffer from these potentially deadly disorders.

Have you been feeling stressed, anxious, sad, hopeless, irritable or unfocused?

Have you noticed a friend who might be feeling this way?

It’s “OK” to answer “yes” if that’s the case. These feelings could be a normal part of the college experience, but they could also be something that requires help to overcome. If you were in physical pain, you’d get it checked out. Mental health is just as important.
