The Importance of Mental Health

And just like that, the year is nearly done. With the second semester coming to a close, this is the time when the weather begins to warm, summer plans are made, and relaxation comes. This is also the time where we have to focus to end the year on a good note. With different assignments and finals, focusing and time management can be difficult.

I cannot speak for every college student or athlete, but I am confident that mental health has been a challenge for many at some point in time. Personally, the obstacles of balancing academics with athletics has definitely led to low moments. College is a time where we truly find our strengths and weaknesses, and sometimes those weaknesses can be hard to find solutions for.

For those who struggle with mental health, you are not alone. There are many people who are struggling and wishing to find happiness. It is important when struggling with mental health to look forward to what lies ahead in the future. The hardships you are going through right now are just a part of your journey. Whenever you feel like giving up, remember why you wanted to come to SHU in the first place. There is an abundance of resources on campus to help with your mental health like the counseling center. 

I hope every single one of you has a strong end to this semester. And keep those in mind who are struggling right now with their mental health and help them whenever they need assistance. We will all be victorious by the end of this journey.
