Ask for Help!

Talking to someone you trust about your stresses, issues, or problems can help ease the negative turmoil. If more help is needed, seeking advice from mental health counselor is also an option. Seeing a mental health professional means you are strong enough to take care of mental and emotional health. To make an appointment with the counseling center call 951/689-1120.

Having time for yourself
Having some time for yourself can help you rejuvenate and refocus. While you may not be able to buy time, you are able to clear time to re-evaluate priorities and use some time management skills to get a few moments for yourself. It is an opportunity to recharge, refocus, and relax!
