Eating & Body Concerns

Do you or someone you know have concerns about eating, weight and/or attractiveness? These concerns can lead to distracting preoccupations with bodies, self-esteem, well-being, and vitality. These preoccupations can become serious and lead to significant health problems.

Mental Health

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Making and sustaining relationships with family, friends, partners, roommates, teachers, and loved ones while at Stanford can be a great source of fulfillment, comfort and love. It can be a way to foster independence as well as explore and learn about yourself. As with all areas of our lives, understanding ourselves will help us understand how we are with others.
