Mental health and graduate school

Patrick S. Osmer — November 21, 2014


Next week is Mental Health Week at Ohio State, and I want you to know that I take graduate student health, including mental health, seriously.

This was a main topic at my meeting last week with the graduate studies committee chairs  in each graduate program. Micky Sharma, Psy.D., the director of Ohio State’s Counseling and Consultation Service, gave us an extremely helpful overview of their services.

Their counseling professionals understand the concerns of graduate students, including balancing academics, work, and personal life; ambiguity of role and status; funding and finances; graduate school culture, and career options after graduate school. Nearly everyone struggles from time to time in graduate school. As Dr. Sharma puts it, talking to a professional who is not in your life can help you gain a different perspective on your situation.

Visit for more information or call 292-5766. We’re also here to help. If you’re not sure where to start, you are welcome to contact Assistant Dean Ann Salimbene (, 292-6031), who works with graduate programs, faculty, and graduate students to figure out how to get students the support they need.

Patrick S. Osmer is vice provost for graduate studies and dean of the Graduate School at Ohio State. He is a past chair of the board of directors for the Council of Graduate Schools. Osmer was chair of the Ohio State astronomy department from 1993-2006.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="">Seo Plugin</a>

Howdy great website! Does running a blog such as this require a large amount of work? I've absolutely no knowledge of programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject however I just needed to ask. Thanks!

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to start. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks
