Abstract:

The group partnered with the Counseling Services center on campus to develop a program to assist college students with stress management techniques.  It is known that going to college can be a very stressful time in a person’s life.  It is important for people’s mental health to be able to identify and manage stress in a positive way.  The Counseling Center is an important resource on campus for students experiencing high stress situationsThe group identified a need on campus when the Counseling Center stated that only 30 new students on campus used the counseling services during the fall semester and less than 10% of students use the services at all.  The group set up a booth on campus to provide education regarding how to recognize and manage stress.  The group also provided participants with ‘de-stress goody bag’ which included a journal, stress ball, and information for the Counseling Center.
