This letter is in regard to the article “Support groups available in the student advocacy center” published Oct. 5, which prompted me to seek help for myself.
As a college student who struggles with depression and other mental illnesses, it really does hinder my ability to learn or even enjoy school.
I don’t have any insurance to cover any therapy or counseling either — I’m sure many others may be facing similar situations — so I’m glad that there is an opportunity for help.
There should be more effort to spread awareness of these services, as there might be unaware students who may be struggling with a lot.
Hopefully, the article and the services reach everyone across our campus and can help those who need it.
