Life at TU

Counseling Center


We all have times when we feel down. It’s only normal to feel sad when relationships end, a good friend moves away, or something happened that makes us unhappy. The stress of a heavy study load, financial difficulties and even unemployment issued can also effect your mood. However, these gloomy feelings will usually pass and there will still be happy times with your friends and family. 

Sometimes it isn't so easy to bounce back and we stop enjoying things that used to be fun. These feelings may be getting in the way of keeping up with studying and even make it difficult to get out of bed in the morning. These could be possible signs for serious depression. Studies have estimated that 10% of college students are diagnosed with depression.
