As college students, it is so easy to just brush off the countless feelings of anxiety or sadness during the year, and we forget about the help available. I believe that U of M has one of the largest amount of resources available for those who are clinically struggling, and those who are just going over a rough patch. I do, feel, however, that there is more that could be done. Firstly, from my experience, many students are afraid of admitting they are feeling depressed due to the large amounts of red tape and legal work they will have to fill out, I know this is a public policy, but it is something that should be looked into. Also, students who are feeling stressed simply fear that they “don’t have the time” to attend a CAPS session or further appointments, and this should be made aware to those promoting mental health policy. I believe that even though our school does a great job at promoting healthy mental lifestyles, they are also creating an unneeded schism between “those who are mentally healthy,” and “those who aren’t,” simply referring to everyone on a spectrum like we were taught is a much better way to prevent a divide that is unnecessary. Lastly, I have been exposed to a lot of “busy” work in school this year, that was obviously done to fill time slots rather than promote critical thinking, which causes unneeded stress due to business. I feel that many educators should truthfully look at the material they are presenting to make sure what is being taught is important to teach. My question for fellow readers: do you feel that mental health will remain stigmatized? If so, why?
