Student Counseling Center - Tackling Loneliness and Social Isolation
Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019
4 p.m. - 5 p.m. Location: SSA 14.245

When we picture what being in college is like, we often visualize having many friends, a constantly packed social calendar and a companion for every meal. It’s also common to desire just one or two close relationships in college. No matter what kind of social expectations you have for your time at UTD, making meaningful connections in college can be a challenge. Over time, feelings of loneliness can become very discouraging and painful which can certainly impact mental health in negative ways. In fact, research has shown that social support can help reduce the effects of depression, anxiety and other health concerns. This 1 hour workshop will dive deeper into the topic of loneliness, discussing ways it can impact your mental health and strategies you can take to combat it.
