Fun college care packages that support emotional and mental well-being.


**Hotlines can be a really great resource if you are feeling unsure and nervous about getting support. They are confidential and you can do it right from your phone 

OF COURSE, in person resources are always a great option. Most every college has a counseling office that you can call and go to for free.
