Take back your Life: A guide to setting yourself up for success
From Jeff Layne

College can be extremely overwhelming. From stressing over school assignments, to working a job, to meeting new people, mental health is jeopardized for students. As Eli Lacayo & Alex Mendoza explain, it’s okay to not be okay. Stress, sadness, and bad feelings in general are normal. However they reveal when it is time to get help. Not only may you be in crisis, but recognizing this state in other people is important as well. They illustrate the significance of empathy, and how we can help one another to identify our feelings and realize when we need help.
