It is not uncommon for students to encounter personal issues while in college. Stress, depression, loss and grief, substance abuse, anger, eating disorders, anxiety and relationship problems can interfere with your ability to do your best academically.
Having good mental health increases the likelihood of doing well academically — just like good physical health is essential for peak athletic performance. When you encounter these personal issues, it is important to seek healthy solutions. The websites listed below are one place to start.
Two other great places to look for help are the SJCC Counseling Center and the SJCC Health Center. Talking with a counselor or one of the highly trained professionals in the Health Center may be the thing to get you back on track to academic success, as well as a more fulfilling life.
Be assured that regardless of whether you meet with a counselor or someone in the Health Center, your issues will be held in complete confidence.
