      The purpose of this research project is to determine whether or not today’s college students are seeking counseling services when they feel they are experiencing mental health issues or concerns. This paper will discuss the mental health and wellness of today’s college students, as well as the overall increase in diagnosed mental health illness among college students. A survey was created by the student researcher and will consist of questions pertaining to any mental health issues or concerns the residential life students are experiencing. The results of the survey will then be discussed and recommendations will be given. Based on my literature review and data collection, this information will be useful in determining if there is a need for providing counseling services in the Residence Halls.
