This information was passed on to me from Margaret Williams in Midland Texas. It is exciting to see what people are doing with their ministries:

Right now, St. Nicholas’ Episcopal Church occupies a lot of my time. I am one of the two parish nurses. Parish nurses consult with patients, answer questions, visit sick parishioners, conduct educational programs, and accompany patients to the hospital for procedures when requested. I also
sing in the choir almost every Sunday. The Jubilee Center also takes a lot of my time. I participate in food distribution activities twice a month, and am available as a nurse to answer questions and provide advice should anyone get sick. I serve as chairman of the board for the Jubilee Center.

As college students are going back to school and new students are entering here is some valuable information on the Top 5 Mental Health Challenges that are affecting our youth:

Research conducted by the National Alliance on Mental Illness on mental health on college campuses shows that:
One in four students have a diagnosable illness
40% do not seek help
80% feel overwhelmed by their responsibilities
50% have been so anxious they struggled in school

While there are certainly growing concerns over other mental health issues affecting college students today, this article covers the prevalent issues of depression, anxiety, suicide, eating disorders and addiction. Our guide is not a substitute for treatment, but it will help you find resources that lead to a happier and healthier college career.
