During the first week of October, two on-campus events will highlight the topic of mental illness.
The events are presented by Lincoln Christian University’s Master of Arts in Counseling (MAC) program and the Student Counseling and Consultation Center.
On Tuesday, October 7, 2014, MAC students will be hosting a brief prayer-focused service in honor of the National Day of Prayer for Mental Illness Recovery and Understanding. The service will be held in Restoration Hall’s Dowling Auditorium at 5 p.m.
During the lunch hour on Thursday, October 9, some of the Seminary’s counselors-in-training will be offering brief screenings for depression and mental health concerns in the Café’s Lincoln Room in recognition of National Depression Screening Day (NDSD). NDSD is a program that is hosted at colleges, hospitals, and counseling centers nationwide. The program provides free information about depression — one of the nation’s leading causes for students to leave college before completing a degree.
The LCU Counseling and Consultation Center is available to provide resources and even presenters on topics such as Depression and Mental Illness. Learn more about the Counseling Center and its services on our website.
