Students and counselors have identified many stressors that contribute to the development or exacerbation of symptoms in those who are predisposed to experience diagnosable mental health disorders. In addition, many students experience various situational and maturational crises while in college. Most university counseling services are limited in the number of students they can treat and how much assistance they can provide. Many students who could benefit from mental health services do not actively seek them.</p> <h4>ABOUT THE AUTHOR</h4> <p>Dr. Cook is Assistant Professor, Department of Nursing, Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania, Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.</p> <p>The author discloses that she has no significant financial interests in any product or class of products discussed directly or indirectly in this activity, including research support.</p> <p>The author wishes to acknowledge James W.
