CARE Team Resources

Mental illness is a serious problem impacting many college students. One in four students have a diagnosable illness and 40% do not seek help. It is important that students understand mental illness; from learning how to recognize the symptoms to knowing where to turn for help. Our resource takes a deeper look into some of the most common mental health issues facing college students and provides a greater context to the discussion by explaining students' rights and common treatments. Students will find helpful information on:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Suicide
  • Eating Disorders
  • Addiction
