GET SOME SLEEP!
INDIVIDUAL MEETING WITH A COUNSELOR
If you need help managing your sleep/wake cycle -- for example, figuring out how to create a reasonable balance in your life, dealing with stress, coping with the anxiety or depression that often accompanies sleep deprivation, etc.-- your first step might be a confidential conversation with a Counseling Center counselor who can work with you to explore your sleep issues and help you locate appropriate sources of support or treatment as needed.
Our Self-Help Web site has information on sleep and sleep disorders, as well as related topics such as depression and anxiety. Here are a few of them:
How to Get a Good Night's Sleep
The Self-Help site includes an online library of web links, informal self-assessment quizzes; and access to several online "advice" sites. Pamphlets and handouts on these topics are also available in the Self-Help Library located in the reception area of the Counseling Center, MGC-214.
LOCAL ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT RESOURCES
Several excellent services are available in the nearby community for students who require assessment or treatment for sleep disorders. In most instances, insurance helps cover the cost of private care. A Counseling Center counselor can help you connect with private treatment in the area that is maximally affordable, appropriate, and accessible for you.
