With the stress and pressure of midterms and quarter two coming to a close, anxiety for students is at an all-time high.
Counselor Beth Walsh-Sahutske has dealt with students’ mental health firsthand, and has seen how it affects them specifically during this time.
“Practicing some good self-care habits (when students don’t feel anxious) is vital,” Walsh-Sahutske said. “It builds some of those skills and that mental health toolbox so that when things do get bad and stressful, and (students) start to have that panic set in, (they) can turn to those tools that they’ve already been practicing so they don’t have to try to learn something new.”
