Hallucinogenic Drugs on Tulane’s Campus

This month’s episode on WTUL 91.5FM is about hallucinogenic drugs on Tulane’s campus. Recently, a very large amount of drugs, estimated in worth of tens of thousands of dollars, were confiscated from the Kappa Sigma Fraternity house. The drugs included MDMA, LSD, opium, and mushrooms, among others. This demonstrates the pervasiveness of hallucinogenic drugs on campus and how it has become part of the common “party culture” that we commonly see. We don’t want to tell people “don’t do drugs,” that’s someone else’s job! But we do want to explain the history of these drugs, what they are, and what positive or negative effects people should expect when choosing to take them. Click above to listen!

college mental health

Over the past several years, our nation has witnessed mass shootings and episodes of violence that have been committed by young, college aged adults. Among other issues such as gun control, this has brought to national attention the need for expanded mental health services on college campuses. It is estimated that one-fifth of college students will experience a mental illness. Furthermore, suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students. Despite the obvious and increasing need for mental health services, college campuses remain underfunded to provide adequate services to their students.

OCD: what it is and what it isn’t

ocd_dummies_book_148

“I’m so OCD!” is a phrase we may use from time to time when describing the fact we must have our closet clean, the crooked picture on the wall bothers us, or when the desk drawer has to be organized in a particular way. However, OCD stands for obsessive compulsive disorder and is often a misused term in daily conversation . OCD can be a very debilitating mental health condition and when left untreated it can be devastating for a patient and their families. OCD symptoms can be made worse in times of stress and is often diagnosed in childhood or early adulthood. Stressful transitions in college can also exacerbated symptoms of college students suffering from OCD. Read my latest article in The Hullabaloo to find out what OCD is, and what it isn’t!
