There might also be some times when your student grows anxious or depressed. How might you encourage your student in these times?
Students make appointments at the Wheaton College Counseling Center (WCCC) for a variety of reasons. Some are looking for help in coping with the pressures associated with adjustment to college life. Others want to learn more effective ways of developing, negotiating, or maintaining relationships. Counseling can be beneficial for students who are feeling depressed or anxious, as well as those who want to examine their beliefs or explore their current life situation. The WCCC offers students the opportunity to look at themselves and their environment and to change the way they think, feel, and behave so that they can make the most of their time at Wheaton College, and beyond.
To learn more about what you as a parent can do when your student is struggling, we invite you to read this short article by the Director of our Wheaton College Counseling Center, Dr. Doug DeMerchant.
