Mental Wellness Guide
Whether you are right out of high school or returning to the classroom after years or decades, college is both exciting and challenging. At Milwaukee Area Technical College, we expect you to show up for classes and do your best to fulfill your academic and occupational goals. We expect you to make sure you’re getting enough rest, exercise and healthy food.
What we don’t expect is for you to do it alone. If you find yourself struggling with the subject matter in a particular class, you have many options. You can talk to your instructor, reach out to a classmate, or go to the Tutoring Center. If you are dealing with other issues – such as stress, depression, abuse, mental illness or are concerned about a classmate, family member or friend – you also have options.
This guide provides information on how to address your own or someone else’s mental health crisis. It also offers a brief description of stress, some coping strategies, a list of college and community resources, and websites with detailed information.
This guide was developed as part of a grant funded by the Charles E. Kubly Foundation.
