In my first two years at Yale, I dealt with a lot of anxiety about not being as smart or as talented as everyone else. This feeling of inadequacy negatively impacted all areas of my life. I thought about using Yale Mental Health services, but I had heard so many horror stories about the long waits and insensitive therapists. Better mental health support would have changed my whole experience at Yale for the better.
