Karen Evenson, MS, LPC Counselor
It happens to all students. It's okay to ask for help!
In college, you can sometimes feel like the weight of the world is on you. If you’re ever feeling anxious, depressed or hopeless, know that you are not alone and there are sources readily available to help you. Data from college students across the country showed that at some point in the previous year:
- 30% felt so depressed that it was difficult to function
- 47% felt things were hopeless
- 49% felt overwhelming anxiety
- 60% felt very lonely
- 87% felt overwhelmed by all they had to do
If you are having any of these feelings you can reach out for help by contacting the Campus Counseling Center. The Counseling Center offers up to 10 free sessions per year for UW-BSC students. We're here to help with all mental health issues, stress management, test taking anxiety, relationship issues, parenting, addictions, and more.
