Mental Health Matters visits mental care on campus

College can be liberating in many ways for students, but freedom can come with some wobbles.

Being away from home for the first time, or even staying at home, college students are buffeted by many pressures and forces, academic and social and financial. Which is why universities tend to have programs to assist students with mental health issues.

Southern Oregon University has such a program, run out of the Student Health and Wellness Center. We focus on student mental health care in this month's edition of Mental Health Matters, our joint project with NAMI-Southern Oregon.

Guests are Anna D'Amato, Executive Director of the SHWC, and Associate Professor Cody Christopherson, who teaches clinical mental health counseling.
