I didn't know what to do anymore!
"I was having a very difficult time. I couldn't stop worrying about my family problems - I couldn't concentrate and I was barely passing my classes. I thought about dropping out and going home - I just didn't know what to do. Then I found a consultant through the assistance service who helped me get my problems under control step by step. I was referred to a therapist for my anxiety as well as a financial counselor. It felt so good to learn some coping skills. I am very grateful and glad that I was able to stay in college."
