Keep things in perspective. Limit worry and agitation by decreasing your COVID-19 information intake. Although you should get the facts and stay informed, remember to take a break and focus on the positive in your life or things you have control over.
Stay Healthy. Adopt healthy hygienic habits: wash your hands with soap and water or hand sanitizer frequently, cover your mouth if you sneeze or cough, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Wear a mask in public spaces.
Seek Help. If your anxiety or worry is feeling overwhelming, seek additional help from our office email@example.com to find out more information or to schedule an appointment.

The Student Counseling Services office is located on the second floor of the LINK in the Rick L. & Vicki L. James University Center. Office hours are 8 am - 5 pm Monday through Friday by appointment and crisis counseling is available as needed.
It is the intent of Trine's counseling services to facilitate emotional and psychological development which can make a positive impact on academics, decision-making, and student retention. The counselor works to help students resolve problems that may impede personal, social, and academic functioning while emphasizing prevention, development, adjustment and overall wellness.
Students come to counseling for several different reasons including depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties. In addition, it is quite common for students to experience overwhelming feelings of loneliness, isolation, disappointing academic results, and career indecision. Counseling services offers a healthy way to handle these challenges and stressors. The counselor will determine what services are the most appropriate for the student and if it is decided that the student's needs can be best met elsewhere, then a referral will be provided.
