18 Missouri Colleges And Universities With Amazing Mental Health Resources

College is a really tough time for a lot of people. For most of us, it's the first time we're out on our own and forced to deal with everyday tasks without the help of a parent like we've been helped for the past 18 years. This can get absolutely stressful, especially with the stress of school, and balance all of these new and exciting challenges.

According to a survey taken from the American College Health Association, 45% of women and 36% of men in college say they feel depressed. While college is new and fun, it may be hard to be able to find resources to battle these horrific feelings. A majority of students don't know that their campus has resources to help them through this difficult time, and some won't even use it. Some people don't get the help they need because they don't know they have resources available, but these resources are there for you.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
