Recognizing the devastating (and potentially life-threatening) impact that stress, anxiety and depression can have on the academic success of Penn College students, College Health Services and Counseling Services teamed for a variety of activities during Mental Health Awareness Week (Oct. 8-12). Information tables were set up across campus, Mental Health Fairs were held Tuesday outside the Keystone Dining Room and Capitol Eatery, screenings were offered, and counselors were available for private consultations.
