Can't sleep? Help is available

From Personal Counseling and Testing

We all know the old saying, "Early to bed and early to rise, makes you healthy, wealthy, and wise." But for the many college students affected by a sleep disturbance, getting a good night's rest is no easy task.

Did you know that college students are particularly prone to sleep disturbances?

Adjusting to college life can be stressful and can effect your ability to sleep properly. Sleep disturbance also can be an indication of a mental health issue such as depression or anxiety; furthermore, sleep disturbance that is chronic or severe can bring on or exacerbate psychological problems.

If you have been feeling anxious or depressed lately and as a result have been having difficulty sleeping, visit this self-assessment Web site, type in the keyword Tommie, and complete a simple online questionnaire. You will receive immediate results as well as the opportunity to schedule an appointment for further evaluation if necessary. Our counseling center staff is here to listen and help you get a good night's sleep.
