Everything in college relates to mental health. Here are a few examples. Anxious college students don't study as well and don't remember as much for tests. Stressed students are not as productive and sometimes will put off assignments making stress worse. Depressed students may miss classes which causes secondary anxiety and worry about the work that was missed. 

That's just the start. Poll any number of people and ssk them if mental health is important. They will tell you it is. Then ask them if they put their mental health first. Most, if not all, will say that they don't. Students will say the same. Yet, good mental health is the foundation upon which everything else builds and thrives. 

So how do you cultivate a mental health first mindset? Listen in and find out.
