Living with the impact of a global pandemic can be overwhelming for anyone, much less for college students whose goals have been abruptly sidetracked and who now face a series of unknowns.
The recent academic interruption not only affects students’ educational pursuits but their mental health as well. Many are experiencing high levels of anxiety about their future, fear of the unknown, grief or loss of their college experience, and difficulty adjusting to new ways of life.
Prior to mid-March when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, students were able to visit the University of Mississippi Counseling Center to meet with counselors and work through worrisome issues in person. They no longer have that option.
In response, clinicians have been trained to provide telemental health and students can receive the help they need. To learn more about this online counseling service, call (662) 915-3784 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also read more about the transition to online sessions: https://news.olemiss.edu/tele-mental-health/.
While needs are being met at the moment, this new service demands additional training costs, technology upgrades and new equipment installed in counselors’ homes. Private support is crucial to the counseling center’s continued operation, providing mental healthcare to Ole Miss students during these troubling times. Please help support the University of Mississippi Counseling Center with a gift today.
