SCOPE Tip of the Week


Overcoming Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most common reasons college students seek mental health counseling. Anxiety might be a focused worry that leads to panic attacks and extreme physical symptoms like a racing heartbeat, difficulty breathing and hysteria. Anxiety can also be more pervasive, impacting every aspect of a student’s life with worry. Anxiety may be a symptom of more serious mental health problems, such as schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder.  Ultimately, the term anxiety covers a wide range of symptoms.

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