The UI offers a wide variety of counseling services for students who are struggling with mental illness. Some of these services include crisis, individual, couples, and group counseling, along with trans-inclusive and outreach services. These services can be reached by phone Monday through Friday from 8 a.
When you call the Counseling Service after hours, it tells you to call back during business hours or to email your assigned counselor. The UI needs to offer some kind of late-night counseling service, or at least extend some of the Counseling Service hours to the weekend.
There is also a Nurseline that has similar hours as the Counseling Service that you can call with questions about medication or self-care measures. While these are both very important resources to have, not everyone who struggles with mental health fits into both of these categories. Emergency rooms are always available at all hours of the night and weekends; however, they are extremely pricey, which is not at all college-student friendly.
The problem is, mental illness has no schedule.
It does not conform to business hours, nor does it care to come when it is most convenient for you. People cannot pick and choose when their illness shows its ugliest symptoms, but when they do, they should be able to know there are resources here for them. The dorm resident advisers are another resource provided to help deal with mental-health issues.
This can be very helpful, although only a fraction of the UI students live in the residence halls, and the RAs are not always available, either.

In less than a quarter mile, a distance planners consider ordinarily walkable, there are a general grocery store, two specialty groceries and a convenience store. There are several walkable sit-down restaurants and fine fast food just beyond. Also within a quarter mile, a member could work out, get a haircut, see a lawyer, buy flowers and pet toys, leave a car for service and get a check-up for a pet.
Resource Guide to the Prairie Hill Neighborhood. The vote was 6 to 0, with councilor John Thomas abstaining because he has a conflict of interest.
John is a landscape architect working with Iowa City Cohousing to develop the layout for plantings on our site. We will be removing most of the existing scrub woods to develop our homes and their surroundings. The landscape plan includes trees along streets and sidewalks and nearly 4 acres devoted to orchards, vegetable gardens, prairie.
On this site plan, the fruit and nut orchards appear as large clumps of big trees to the northwest corner of the developed area and between the development and the half of the site that is undeveloped. On the west or left side of the site plan, the large ovals are planned as mostly vegetable gardens.
The lightly shaded areas just outside the gardens will have small fruit-bearing trees and shrubs. To the south or the bottom of the site the steep hill will be mostly undisturbed or developed in prairie plants. To the west or left of the site, the natural woodland will be supplemented with native fruit and nut trees. We are fortunate that the wooded ravine just west of Prairie Hill property will remain natural in perpetuity.
On the developed or right half of the site, we will plant shade trees along Miller Avenue, Prairie Hill Lane, and our sidewalk network.
