Your son or daughter has made a life changing decision by having the courage to attend clarion university.  you are part of their support and journey.  Your responsibility is to help them stay well while they are here.  Following are some tools that can help you do that, but if you have any questions do not hesitate to call the student support assistant for a consultation at 814 393 2031

Signs of a problem

If you notice any of the following, please let your son or daughter know that you are noticing these.  there is a guide to this conversation following this checklist in the "how to respond" link.

  • Changes in sleep patterns (taking longer to fall asleep, waking up tired, not feeling well rested)
  • Changes in eating patterns
  • Increased frequency of headaches
  • More short-tempered than usual
  • Recurring colds and minor illness
  • Frequent muscle ache and/or tightness
  • More disorganized than usual
  • Increased difficulty in task completion
  • A greater sense of persistent time pressure
  • Increased generalized frustration and anger

How to respond

You have a lot of power to help your son or daughter be successful and transition to college well.  Sometimes students struggle to find friend, become involved, understand their new role, and find emotional balance.  When you notice this happening, it can be difficult to know how to approach the topic with them.  If you are noticing any of the previous signs of difficulty, please use this guide to let your son or daughter know. If you need to talk through it before you talk to your student, call the Student Support Assistant at 814 393 2031.


Faculty and Staff

When students are at school, they spend more time with Clarion's faculty and staff than their families. That's why it's important for faculty and staff members to identify the signs that students are not able to give 100%.  At times, it is very difficulty to know what to say to a student to let them know that you see that they could use some support and want to help them.  Consultations with the Student Support Assistant are to help relieve the stress of initiating the conversation by coming up with a game plan of what to say, and how to acknowledge, care, and find help for students of concern.  If you notice a student who you are concerned about or would like to help them find a way to give 100% to their education, contact the Student Support Assistant, use this resource, or call (814) 393 2031.
