Did you know May is Mental Health Awareness month? Mental Health America has named May Mental Health Awareness month and chose this year’s theme to be “Mind Your Health”. The goal of Mental Health America is to construct public acknowledgement of the importance of mental health on the body and towards overall health. It’s important to recognize how the body and mind interact with each other. Poor health on one can greatly affect the other.

On the Mental Health America website, there are numerous sources about mental illnesses including a section just for college students. Mental health issues are very likely to occur in college students, whether it be anxiety of living away from home or stress from the intense schoolwork. Within the help resources is a page dedicated to the Top Ten Freshman Year Issues. It lists major problems that almost everyone has to deal with including roommates, sleeping, money, and schoolwork. It also gives pointers on how to deal with these issues.

These resources are great places to start, but if you feel you need more guidance, don’t forget about the Counseling Center here at UNH. It’s a great place to get in touch with your mind and improve your overall wellbeing.
