Be Careful of College Students With Mental Health Issues
June 18, 2015
We sent our daughter off to college in the next state but when she was living on campus, she got in fights with other students and had to change rooms a couple of times.
Unlike many first year students, she is allowed to live off campus so my husband and I told her we would help her pay for an apartment but we don’t have a lot of money.
She did receive a scholarship to go to this college, which will help her out but she still had to get a roommate to live in her apartment. Since her new roommate has moved in, she has also quarreled with her. What else can we do to help our daughter out and make sure she is safe? Protecting Our Daughter, Alabama
Dear Protecting Our Daughter?
Short of taking her out of that school and making her lose the scholarship, you don’t have a lot of options here. Time and time again we hear about college roommates hurting or even killing each other.
Students need to be careful of roommates and other students who have mental health issues or who might be criminals. They are everywhere!
Students just like adults might have some type of mental health issue, so nowadays you really have to be careful who you associate with.
Some students might be broke and desperate so students should not allow just anyone to move into their dorms or apartments. To avoid living with these types of individuals, it’s always best for students to try to take a relative or friend to college with them to be their roommates.
You also want to educate your daughter about the foods that she is eating because many foods today especially foods containing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) (processed foods) causes anger in individuals so make sure she has access to the holistic and natural community in her city.
