Occasionally feeling sad, angry, frustrated, or stressed is normal for everyone. These feelings are typical responses to a break-up, the loss of a loved one, financial problems, or stressors that are difficult to accept and manage. Frequently, these feelings improve on their own over time, however, talking to family, friends, and counselors can help you explore fresh perspectives, speed up healing, and achieve stability in your life.

  • If you are a student taking credit classes, visit Student Health Services, Bldg 67B and request personal counseling to begin the process of getting help.
  • If you are not taking credit classes, click on our list of resources to find counseling agencies near you.
