Safety Tip of the Month: Mental health issues are quite common for students in their young twenties. It is so important to seek our help and assistance if something isn’t feeling right. Common signs of mental health changes include major changes in appetite, sleeping patterns, energy levels, and interest in certain activities. If you or a friend is experiencing some or all of these symptoms, we encourage you to seek support from our University Counseling Services located on the 2nd Floor of Royce Hall.
Hope to see you around the Hall. Be sure and stop by if you have any questions, or just to say, hello!
