Live chat - Helping college students cope with post-holiday depression

Image: Robert WethingWintertime blues can hit college students, too. Many return to campus after the holiday fun and the warm embrace of family and friends. It's cold and bleak outside; freshman say the novelty of college has worn off. Illnesses often spread, and parents' start getting calls - maybe school isn't for me after all; can I come home? What's the cure?
