For the hardships that come with college, UMD Health Services provides on campus counseling for just about everything. Mental health, in particular, has become a hot topic on campus.
"The severity of health issues that students come to college with has really increased," said Jean Bairbeau-Thoennes, Associate Program Director and Counselor at UMD Health Services. "Students are dealing with a lot more stressors, such as funding the cost of college on their own, so students are taking more credits and are working to try to balance it out."
