Mt. Pleasant, MI: Central MI U has waiting list for counseling services

Nov 27, 2017, Mt. Pleasant, MI, (Editorial) Central Michigan University Life: As Counseling Center usage is on the rise, don't wait until it's too late to seek help http://www.cm-life.com/article/2017/11/mental-health-editorial When Central Michigan Life called the Counseling Center on Friday, Nov. 17, there were 65 students on a waitlist to meet with a counselor. Earlier in the semester, that waitlist was more than 100 people long. We write a similar editorial around this time: It is the same words, refined differently, but with one central premise — the Counseling Center should be better staffed, the university should put more of an emphasis on mental health accessibility for students and there shouldn't have to be a waitlist where students in need of help are pushed aside for a date weeks away.
