In the spring 2019 semester, the Iowa State Daily introduced “The Talk,” a series with the goal to open up discussion about intimacy among our readers. This semester, we hope to bring in the discussion about mental health through our series “Talk about it.” 

Throughout this series, we will discuss issues such as awareness of resources, finding the right therapist, breaking down mental health and more. We plan to publish one story each week for the rest of the semester addressing an issue related to mental health. 

Our hope is by the end of the series, we may have opened our readers up to discussions in ways they hadn't thought of or may not have felt they were able to speak about before. 

Mental health can affect a lot of our readers and it’s time to talk about it.

Toward the end of the semester, college students may feel like everything is falling apart. That feeling is burnout.
