We've all been in situations where we have asked ourselves that same question. Sometimes the option is clear – you need help with student loans so you seek financial aid – while other times the answer lies completely out of reach.
Below we have linked several self-assessments for the most frequently occuring areas of student distress. Remember, these are self-assessments – they are intended to assist you interpreting your situation and ascertaining a direction. They are not intended as a form of diagnosis, medical evaluation, or to replace meeting with a qualified professional to discuss your concerns.
Some people feel sad or generally down while depressed, while others describe it as all feelings being muted. Here is a list of symptoms related to depression from the Mayoclinic: sadness, irritability, feeling negative and worthless, anger, poor performance or poor attendance in class, feeling misunderstood and extremely sensitive, using recreational drugs or alcohol, eating or sleeping too much, self-harm, loss of interest in normal activities, and avoidance of social interaction.
Remember: If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health emergency or crisis, please contact campus security at (304) 367-4357, dial 911, or go to the nearest emergency room for immediate help.
