Students

In addition to the services provided by Counseling and Health, you may need help in finding additional information about other resources, both on and off-campus. Below you will find presentations and handouts on a variety of mental health topics and links to additional information online. These resources are often used during outreach presentations and workshops and may be beneficial in providing you with information about concerns you may have.

Active Minds

The Active Minds student organization serves as a liaison between students and the mental health community by promoting open discussions about mental health, and holding various events such as movie screenings, panel discussions, stress relief activities and being a part of national events (Mental Health Awareness week, Stomp out Stigma, National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, etc.).

Active Minds Goals are to break down the stigma of mental illness, raise awareness of mental health amongst college students and to provide information and educate our campus about mental illnesses and what help is available.

For more information, please visit the Active Minds website.

Mental Health Screenings

Drexel participates in the Screening for Mental Health program, which can be accessed by students who may have questions about whether or not their current concerns may warrant additional help. This online screening for depression, alcohol and eating disorders is free and provided so that you may find out - in a few minutes - whether or not professional consultation would be helpful to you.

Please visit mentalhealthscreening.org/screening/DREXEL for more information and to take a free, anonymous screening. 

Men's Issues

Although they may not discuss it openly with friends or family, men may experience a great deal of stress and confusion related to ongoing problems. Some of these life concerns are specific to men, or they may be uniquely experienced by men. Some men may believe that it is “weak” to seek out professional help, but more and more of them are utilizing counseling to work through their problems, as they realize that it can be very helpful to talk confidentially with a non-judgmental, experienced professional.

Women's Issues

Women can experience unique stressors and life experiences that can result in difficulty coping and maintaining a happy life. While they may have family and friends to speak with in an attempt to manage their concerns, women will also seek out professional help, utilizing counseling to work through their problems. As they realize that it can be very helpful to talk confidentially with a non-judgmental, experienced professional, they may find relief and increase their ability to have a satisfying and meaningful life.
