Why do individuals come to the Counseling Center?
During your years in college you will have many opportunities to develop your academic and career interests, form close relationships, examine your values and beliefs, and learn about the world around you. These opportunities can often feel exciting and engaging, but they can also be stressful. Problems with sleeping, anxiety about tests, difficulties with friends and loved ones, and uncertainty about the future are common complaints of college students. We work with students who are just starting to experience problems as well as with those who have struggled for a long time with psychological difficulties. Above all, we want to help you learn ways to achieve positive mental health and to avoid serious emotional distress so that you can make the most out of your Lafayette experience.
