HELPING STUDENTS BALANCE STRESS
According to the 2011 National College Health Assessment
Survey,
28% said that stress had negatively affected their
academic performance.
43% rated their stress level as “more than average” and
10% reported experiencing “tremendous stress” with the
past 12 months.
“My friend tried to kill herself last weekend, and
she asked me for help. I talked to my professor
about this, and he sent me to the academic
advising office. The advisor there was very
understanding and helpful. Together we figured out
how to get my friend help. I am so glad that I don’t
have to worry about this all by myself anymore.”
