Michelle Bond has begun a position at University Health Services at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She works as an Associate Counselor – Engineering Focus in Mental Health. This means she works with patients in the UW-Madison School of Engineering.
Bond, who spent four years working as a counselor at an Indiana engineering college, says engineering students in particular can face challenges when it comes to their mental health.
“There are unique pressures to this field of study,” Bond says. These can include a competitive academic environment, demanding performance expectations, and a field that necessitates black and white thinking.
“There is a right answer in engineering,” says Bond, “but not necessarily in emotions or experiences.”
