Health and Wellness Resources
Whether you’re a first-semester freshman or an experienced graduate student, successfully balancing your academic, professional and personal lives can be a challenge. Even the most organized student may feel overwhelmed, and it is very common for people of all ages to face issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, grief or addiction. There are also unexpected, traumatic life events that no one can predict.
Through the University Park Health Center, USC offers a variety of resources to help students overcome physical and psychological illnesses and concerns, including:
- Medical Services
- Counseling Services
- Office for Wellness and Health Promotion
- Health Insurance
- Online Health Information
