Episode 47: Supporting Your Mental Health While in College

July 25, 2022

You might hit up the athletics center to exercise your body, the academic assistance office to sharpen your study skills or a weeknight social event to build strong bonds with friends and classmates. But where on a college campus do you go to care for your mind?

The answer is the counseling center, a place dedicated to helping students support their mental and emotional health.

In this episode, we're covering the types of services a counseling center might offer, the process of receiving counseling on campus, tips for developing self-help tools and more.

Our guests are two professionals from Bucknell's own Counseling & Student Development Center: Staff Psychologist Kelly Shaw and Staff Counselor Lee Bard.
