SCOPE Tip of the Week


Help, I'm Depressed!

It isn’t just a bad day. Depression is a sadness that doesn’t just disappear.

College can be a difficult adjustment for students. Do you remember what it was like? Never before had you changed your address, your food, your roommate, and decided what classes to take.

When depression settles in, it can be like carrying a backpack full of bricks on top of all the other requirements at college. There may be a lack of pleasure in anything previously enjoyed.

For more on helping students with depression, please view our full Tip of the Week here.
