Mental Health Tip of the Week
Returning to campus after a long and relaxing break can be a difficult transition. If you find that you are feeling fatigued, withdrawn or isolated or are noticing a change in sleeping patterns, you may be suffering from a common mood disorder like depression.
It is important to know that if you or a friend is experiencing these symptoms, you are not alone. 31% of college students report feeling some level of depression during their second semester and Ohio State at Marion has resources and staff to help. Feel free to call or email Leslie Beary in the Office of Counseling and Wellness to set up an appointment to talk (740-725-6349 or email@example.com).
And remember, if you feel that you need to test your mood at any time during the year, you can take an anonymous online mental health screening, which can be accessed by visiting http://www.mentalhealthscreening.org/screening/ohiomarion. By taking a screening, you can find out in just a few minutes whether you may be experiencing symptoms of depression and what you should do regarding treatment.
