Mercy College has provided a convenient way for students to request Replacement Student ID badges online. Simply complete the new form located on the Student Records forms webpage. Students need to enter their information, and they will be contacted when their replacement ID badge is ready for pickup. Note: There is a $12 fee (charged to their student account) to replace a Student ID badge and an alternative photo identification may need to be provided in order to pick up the new badge.
Eating Disorder Awareness
Submitted by Suzanne Hall
According to the National Eating
Disorders Association (NEDA), approximately 10-20% of women and 4-10% of men in
college suffer from an eating disorder. However, NEDA observes that this amount
is likely inaccurate because many people with eating disorders hide their
symptoms and go undiagnosed.
NEDA reports that many full-blown eating disorders develop between the ages of 18-21. Eating disorders, which include anorexia nervosa, bulima nervosa, binge-eating disorder, and avoidant/ restrictive food intake disorder, are considered both a medical and mental health issue. In fact, they are the mental illness with the highest mortality rate. Additionally, many people who do not have a diagnosable eating disorder struggle with an unhealthy relationship with their body. Signs of an unhealthy relationship include guilt after eating, being preoccupied with a desire to be thinner, and using food as a strategy for managing stress.
If you are concerned about your own eating habits, please visit NEDA’s website for a free, anonymous eating disorder assessment.
Counseling and Wellness Services, located at M5812, also provides free eating disorder screenings. For more information, please contact Suzanne Hall at email@example.com or 419-251-1454.
Additionally, information and resources will be available in the Jefferson 2nd and 3rd-floor lounges during the week of March 25-29. There will also be a Body Positivity Wall in each lounge where students and staff are welcome to write positive messages.
