Self-Help and Self-Assessment
The Counseling Center is an advocate for students learning how to promote good mental health. We have a wide variety of on-line resources, available through mySU. In addition, we encourage students to use our house to relax and re-charge. We invite students to take a few minutes in our massage chair, put their feet up or look through our resource library. We hear we have some of the most comfortable chairs on campus!
Here are some resources and tools at the Counseling Center you can use on your own:
1. Put your feet up and listen to a relaxation tape
2. Play Wild Divine, a computer game that uses biofeedback to teach stress management and mindfulness
3. Check out tips for getting a good night’s sleep
4. Download a sleep assessment quiz
5. Check out a book about managing anxiety, depression, or eating issues
6. Take 10 minutes to ease your sore back in our massage chair
7. Take charge of your mental health and complete an anonymous online screening for depression, anxiety, eating concerns or alcohol use
8. Visit ULifeline, an online resource for suicide prevention, if you have questions concerning a friend
