Mental Health

If you have past, present, or ongoing mental health concerns, do not be afraid to share them. Tell your medical provider during your physical examination, and notify the Director of Study Abroad.  If you take medication daily, make sure you have a prescription which covers the duration of your time abroad. If you participate in counseling sessions, inquire about the possibility continuing them through phone or Skype interactions.
