Every college student has to deal with stress at some point in his or her academic career. Sometimes this stress becomes so tremendous for a person that they can’t escape it. This will do tremendous damage on the individual’s mental health. This is why I made a brochure to help promote stress awareness for college students. I went into detail about the symptoms of stress and how to cope with them. I tried to make it as concise as possible and only applied the most important information to the brochure.

There was a picture placed with a college student that is doing work and is tremendously happy above the references with the title “This could be you!!!” This picture helps reinstate that the coping mechanisms could make students happy. This brochure will be placed in libraries and the health center. Students would be more likely to be under high stress and to pick up the brochure. I hope the brochure makes students stride for happiness and helps spread awareness.
