    Anxiety

    Anxiety is very common and a certain level of anxiety is absolutely normal from situation to situation. However, anxiety can be harmful when it gets in the way of being able to live your daily life by causing an abundance of fear, stress, physical pain or tension, or keeps you from doing things you’d like to do. An anxiety disorder may come into play if this anxiety persists for long periods of time and at greater levels than is deemed normal or out of proportion to the situation. If you think that your anxiety might be out of control, you can talk to the counselor about a consultation and a diagnosis.

    Depression

    It can be normal to feel sad, down, or lonely at times. However, sometimes when the sadness persists for too long, or becomes too difficult to see your way out of, it can be a sign of depression. Depression can look different for many different people, but some typical signs of depression can include:

    • Persistent sadness
    • Loss of interest
    • Difficulty sleeping
    • Sleeping too much
    • Change of appetite
    • Fatigue
    • Withdrawal
    • Difficulty concentrating
    • Feelings of worthlessness
    • Hopelessness
    • Aches and pains
    • Substance use

    Depression often has an onset during the teenage and college years, so it is important to understand that these changes can occur during challenging times at college. However, depression is common and treatable. Remember, there are ways to feel better and that by reaching out for help, these symptoms don’t have to last.
