LSUA Cares Stress and Depression Screening

The Division of Student Engagement is pleased to announce a new campus initiative to support mental health and wellbeing of our students.  

As we approach finals and the holidays, Counseling Services wants to enhance student wellness by helping students identify – and do something about – stress, anxiety, depression and other problems that can interfere with academic, social, and personal functioning.  We invite you to take a few minutes right now to visit and complete a brief online Stress and Depression Questionnaire. The Stress & Depression Questionnaire is entirely anonymous, confidential, and completely voluntary. 

Once you complete the 10-minute questionnaire, LSUA’s newest counselor, Mrs. Christine Tilley, LICSW, will then review your questionnaire and send a personal response to you over the secure website, which will include any recommendations for follow-up. You will then have an opportunity to exchange online messages with the counselor through the anonymous dialogue feature using only your User ID, or to set up a face-to-face meeting to talk to the counselor in more detail.

We urge all students to take advantage of this safe and secure way to find out if stress, anxiety or depression may be affecting you. The good news is that treatments for these challenges are highly effective and are available right here on campus, or off-campus if you prefer.  

If you have any questions about this service, please contact Cynthia Thomas, PhD at cthomas@lsua.edu or (318) 427-4481. 

As always, if you would like to schedule an initial intake with one of LSUA’s counselors, please contact the Division of Student Engagement at (318) 767-2604. 

LSUA Cares and wants you to be successful personally and with your academics!
