Leila Ally started this petition to UT Counseling and Mental Health Center and

With a student body of over 7,000 students in the Cockrell School of Engineering at UT, the fact that there is only one engineering specific counselor is very disappointing. On a broader scope, the UT CMHC Counselors in Academic Residence Program has on average one counselor per college within UT. This does not allow for students to have the ease in accessing help because this program is overwhelmed with how many students they have to serve. With signing this petition, you are showing to these departments that there is a desire and need for better help to make sure the students are supported. When success is focused upon above all else, the student's mental health is put at risk especially within academically rigorous field. Therefore, by increasing the amount of counselors, we can increase the amount of students that are helped and put on a healthy path of success.
