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 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.
