COLLEGE STUDENTS AND MENTAL HEALTH

Normal life includes some anxiety and fear.  In many cases anxiety or fear could motivate us to solve problems, or prepare for upcoming tasks.   However, when these anxiety and fear linger, these feelings can be overwhelming and may interfere with your academic goals.  

Excessive worrying and physical tension are two key components of anxiety.  In fact, excessive worrying increases physical tension.   Worrying about the future, making a mistake, receiving a negative evaluation, failing a test, and relationship break-up are among the most common themes amid college students.   In many cases learning how to control your worries alleviates anxiety and depression.  For  more information about how to mange anxiety visit the Anxiety and Depression Association of America or contact the BSC Counseling Center at 716- 878-4436.
