Protecting Your Mental Health During College Years

Mental health during college is an important topic, but it’s one that’s not often talked about. In this blog, we’re going to go over some things to consider when it comes to protecting your mental health during this time. 

Before we begin, it’s important to note that everyone has a different college experience and a different mental health experience as well. At Avalon Malibu, we provide a variety of different treatment plan options, so that each of our clients has access to the services that make the most sense for them.

Mental Health During College Years

Let’s go over some of the most important things to think about when it comes to mental health during college. Feel free to take the following suggestions and tailor them so that they make sense for your individual situation. If you have questions about the following suggestions, feel free to reach out to our Avalon Malibu staff.


Many colleges have resources that students can use to improve their mental health. Some colleges have a counseling center, which can be extremely helpful when it comes to improving your mental health. Consider researching which resources your college provides, so that you can take advantage of them and work towards your mental health goals.

Professor Support

Reaching out to your professors for support is a good option in some situations. Consider letting them know what you’re going through and then seeing if there’s a way they can support you.

Peer Support

It’s important not to underestimate the power of peer support. Your peers may understand what you’re going through, so consider if there’s anyone you can reach out to when you’re going through a difficult moment.

Fun Activities

During college, it can be easy to get caught up in homework and studying for exams. While this is important, it’s also important to make sure that you’re having fun! Consider finding an activity, such as running or rock climbing, that allows you to release some stress while still having fun.
