Writing can be a source of anxiety for many students. Feel free to check out some helpful resources for understanding and overcoming writing anxiety.

Sometimes it's not just the writing. Mental health is the largest factor affecting students' academic success at WOU. Whether you need support now or want to build better mental health for when times get tough, visit WOU's Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Promotion website.
