We all have our share of problems. Sometimes these problems interfere with our ability to do well in college, sometimes they interfere with our ability to continue in class, and sometimes they interfere with our emotional well-being.
College life offers many new experiences and challenges. This can be an exciting time in your life. It can also be a stressful time if you, or someone you know, feels overwhelmed. Sometimes problems interfere with our emotional well-being. As a result, our ability to continue with classes or do well in college will diminish.
