*Disclaimer: this page mentions suicide and mental health disorders like anxiety*
According to a 2019 study by the American College Health Association (ACHA), 87% of college students felt overwhelmed by all they had to do: 66% felt overwhelming anxiety, 56% felt hopeless, and 13% considered suicide. While WKU offers mental health counseling services, HEP is a great resource for students to have facilitated discussions surrounding mental health and learn ways to improve their mental well-being.
