Personal Help

Many Adult High School students are under enormous pressures as they earn a living, go to school, and take care of their children. Stress, depression and substance abuse affect how you focus in school, the way you do your job, and your relationships with others.

Once you find out what is causing you to feel or act in a certain way, the next step is finding someone to talk to about it. See your counselor and academic advisor, who will listen to you confidentially, and point you to MATC resources to help get you back on track.
