Why Do Some People Struggle in College?
Going to college marks a major life change. You probably live on your own, perhaps for the first time, and you’re faced with a much more rigorous, demanding academic schedule than you dealt with in high school. You might feel like your pressures constantly increase on all sides as the semester goes on, whether you’re playing sports or working to maintain a high GPA so you can keep your scholarship.
It’s completely normal for most people to struggle with this transition, so if you’re having a hard time, you’re not alone, and things could improve with time. However, there could also be an underlying issue that impacts your ability to thrive at college.
For instance, an undiagnosed written or mathematical learning disorder could interfere with your success in challenging classes. The onset of a mental illness like depression, anxiety, or OCD can overwhelm you and impact your performance in school and ability to form lasting relationships.
How Can We Help You?
Whether you think you suffer from a mental illness or learning disorder or you’re simply frustrated with what you see as your inability to succeed in college, we can help. In particular, our team provides neuropsychological assessments and treatments that can help you get to the root of your problem.
With the right treatment, like cognitive behavioral therapy for OCD and anxiety or medication to manage depression, you can take the first steps in getting your college career back on track.
We understand that every patient is different and no two experience are ever the same, so we take the time to get to know each client on an individual basis. To schedule a first appointment and learn more, call (847) 754-9343.
