Mental and Behavioral Health
An editorial in the Indiana Daily Student, the student newspaper of Indiana University, argues that millennial anxiety should be taken seriously rather than dismissed as evidence of them being “too soft” or “crybabies.”
In an op-ed for the Daily Texan, UT Austin sophomore Ian Simms writes that the school should devote part of freshman orientation to educating students about mental health services on campus, as well as those within the Austin community. UT Austin’s counseling center, like many across the country, is understaffed and underfunded. “UT would better serve its students by connecting students to resources throughout Austin as soon as possible — without students first having to book an appointment at the CMHC,” he writes.
