Parent Helpline

Have you noticed when you talk to your child at college they may be exhibiting one or more of these symptoms?

  • Student reports not sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Reports they have not made any friends
  • Reports they stay in their room all of the time
  • Poor concentration
  • Not attending classes
  • Failing classes
  • Relationship problems
  • Appetite changes (eating too much or too little)
  • Tearfulness or crying often
  • Helpless feelings
  • Hopeless feelings

Although some of these symptoms are typical adjustment issues, several of them combined can mean there is a serious problem. Mental health issues are on the rise for college students. If you are aware of an existing mental health problem or have become concerned due to dramatic changes that you have noticed, there are resources available on campus:

  • Campus Safety and Security can provide welfare checks, (731) 881-7777.
  • Student Health and Counseling Services offer free and confidential counseling, (731) 881-7750.
