When your child leaves for college, it’s just as much an adjustment for you as it is for them. You’re not able to see them, or even check in with them, daily. So how can you be sure they’re taking care of themselves as well as getting the help they need when they need it?In addition to providing one-on-one counseling sessions, campuses also have group therapy and 24/7 hotlines that students can call in a time of need. Some schools offer students the opportunity to submit care referrals on behalf of their friends, if/when they see someone in their circle battling mental health on their college campus. If your child is struggling with an issue, counseling services is typically the best place to start resolving the issue. In addition to helping with mental health, they can assist students with charting a path to better overall well-being and recovery.College campuses make it easy to see a doctor or nurse practitioner to get a quick, accurate diagnosis and the right medication. With health services directly on campus, students don’t need to worry about finding a physician in their college town. Health centers also host vaccination clinics as well as health and well-being programs. They function just like your child’s physician at home.
