We want to do our part to help you have the best possible experience during your time at LSSC.  Balancing one’s studies and personal life can be difficult. Rather than becoming overwhelmed by these often-competing demands, students can learn to cope more effectively with the right skills and support.   

LSSC is committed to assisting students in developing these tools to deal with stress and other troubles when they arise. The Student Assistance Program (SAP) provides support in dealing with the pressures and challenges students face during their academic and professional careers.

The 2017 National College Health Assessment reports that in the last academic year:

  • 51% of students said they felt hopeless at least once
  • 87% felt overwhelmed at least once
  • 61% felt overwhelmed by anxiety at least once
  • 10.3% seriously considered suicide
  • 39% felt so depressed that it was difficult to function at least once
