pursuing degrees and/or certificates in healthcare fields, we would like to
pose the following questions:
If you had a temperature or were feeling sick to
your stomach. What would you do? Maybe you would take something over the
counter or have some tea. But what if
what you were doing wasn’t making you feel any better? What would you do?
Many of you are probably thinking I would go to my doctor or
go to the local immediate care to see a doctor depending on the severity or
length of time that you were feeling ill.
What would you do if you are feeling down or
anxious? Who would you talk to or what
would you do?
Addressing and taking care of our mental
health is just as important as us keeping up with our daily hygiene. However, some of us may feel like talking to
a counselor could be taboo.
Unfortunately, to some people there is still a stigma around seeking
If your car had a flat tire, would
you keep driving around with a flat tire?
The pandemic has been extremely
tough on everyone. It’s time for us to give permission to ourselves to feel
it’s okay to seek counseling if you’re feeling down or anxious or not
well. If it’s okay to go see the doctor
when we have sore throat and wonder if we have Covid-19, it should be okay for us
to seek counseling if we are not feeling mentally well.
NC offers MYSSP app, which you can download to your phones to speak to a
Licensed Professional Counselor and/or Chat (IM) with them if you need someone
to talk to. The College believes that
it’s important for all of our students to be able to take care of their Mental
Health, so this is free to our students.
It’s a great resource and I would encourage anyone who needs to talk to
someone to download the MYSSP app and give it a try.
