Ugh. That word alone makes me let out a sigh. There is no one on this planet that is immune to stress.
As a public health student, I hear about the importance of being physically healthy all the time. There are tips anywhere and everywhere on fitting exercise into a busy schedule, meal prepping, and getting maximum gains.
But today, I’d like to focus on mental health. Sure, exercise can help you wind down and blow off some steam, but sometimes, you need a little more help.
That’s what the Center for Counseling and Consultation (CCC) is for. Any student that is registered for classes at the Universities at Shady Grove can visit the CCC for a variety of services. If you’re stressed out and need someone to talk to, you should definitely stop by, or make an appointment. If you’re having a having feeling overwhelmed, and don’t know what you want to do with your life, try career/major counseling. If you’re having relationship troubles, there’s even couples counseling.
As a UMD student at USG, I’m glad I don’t have to take on my problems by myself. No one at this campus should ever feel alone. There is always someone to talk to, and someone willing to support you and anyone else in the USG community.
