Maggie Alden shares some hard-earned wisdom about self-recognition and self-help at Columbia.
Reflections on depression from the other side.
By disparaging the field of mental health, professors and administrators taint the notion of getting help for students who might need it but don't know it.
You feel most “you” when you’re depressed, and coming out of it—coming back into the life you once led—can feel overwhelming, disingenuous, or unappealing.
Looking to the community of our peers can help alleviate individuals' fears about confronting mental health issues.

As the stigma of mental illness dissolves, we need to get comfortable with people opening up and sharing their stories.
Improvements must be made to fix the currently ailing Counseling and Psychological Services.
“So you wanna quit,” mom said. “You wanna drop out. Move home.” I looked down at my hands, picked up my fork, and pushed the Thanksgiving leftovers around my plate. The yellow light encircling the dining table in an otherwise dark house made me feel like I was in an interrogation room.
