Free Mental Health Resources For College Students

As most college students across the world make the huge transition from over a year of online learning back to in-person learning, it’s important to take steps to preserve your mental health and well-being.

Change creates stress. There’s no side-stepping that. But stress is a normal and even necessary part of life - and there are resources out there that can help you work through it. This moment will pass, but in the mean-time, here’s a list of mental health resources available to help you manage through the stress and acclimate to difficult changes.
