College Student Mental Health
Just like many others, college students have mental health needs that require assistance at times. Saint Louis University recognizes that there are mental health needs unique to college students. We believe in assisting and equipping students with the resources and information they need, whether to help with an existing issue, recognize an emerging one, or prevent problems from occurring.
Below are several helpful resources that provide useful information, resources, guides, and other tools to educate, guide, and assist college students during this important time of their lives.
