Counseling Services will host a session entitled, “Mental Health And International Students” on Thursday, Nov.  21 from 2 to 4 p.m. in CLC 309.

 You, your colleagues, and your team should be aware of the warning signs of a developing mental health problem among international students and an understanding of how you can effectively respond to these growing concerns. Factors such as separation from one’s family/support system, loneliness, a lack of a sense of “fitting in”, academic pressure and more can increase the risk of developing a mental health problem.
