First-generation college students often face new challenges and stressors that can be difficult for them to cope with. Lack of coping skills for first-generation college students can have adverse effects on mental health such as increased symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression. When college students develop coping skills and self-care strategies, they may become more successful in navigating college life and responsibilities. To support first-generation students, I will develop a three-part interactive workshop for students enrolled in college support programs attending California State University, Monterey Bay in Seaside, California.
