Feeling anxious about an upcoming test? Depressed because of the weather? Or, just plain worried?
Common Concerns is for you!
Common Concerns is a program headed by the University of Michigan Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) that works to address everyday mental health and wellness concerns that students have with an on staff counselor.
Sessions are held Monday to Thursday from 4:15-5:30 PM on the 3rd floor of the Michigan Union, Annex Room (map) and are totally free. Each day focuses on different concerns that students might have.
Mondays focus on managing anxiety and stress levels whether it be about relationships, school or anything else.
Tuesdays go over what depression is and isn’t. It also explores ways to help students feel more energized and well-equipped to navigate through their difficult situation or depressed mood.
Wednesdays are for anyone dealing with performance issues academically or in other parts of your life (job interviews, athletics, etc.). There is a rotating topic schedule.
Thursdays helps people work on managing relationships in their lives. Dealing with difficult people in your life can be extremely stressful. Unfortunately, few people ever learn the high-level skills needed to manage difficult relationships. This series will help you do just that.
