Join us for “Four Months to Send Off” an hour-long workshop to prepare students and parents of soon-to-be graduates for the mental health challenges that many first-year college students face. 1 in 4 young adults are diagnosed with a mental illness during
college and 1 in 10 students have thoughts of suicide while in college. With scary statistic rising, it’s time to take mental health seriously. Parents want to send their children off to college with peace of mind that they’ll be okay, and this is a perfect way to add some relief.
The workshop will cover how college impacts one’s mental health, different natural alternative ways to combat this, and other healthy habits that contribute to a healthy mindset in college. This workshop will also help parents and students create and put together a ” mental health toolbox” with essential oils and blends that they can take to college with them.
This workshop is taught by Cara Pedersen, a Cal State Fullerton student and holistic advocate and mental health educator. As a fourth year in college, she strives to assist and teach college students how to reduce stress and promote a healthy lifestyle mentally through on-campus and online classes.
