We've redesigned our website with you in mind.

The University Health Services, Tang Center is proud to launch our newly redesigned website, uhs.berkeley.edu.

So I haven’t dated in while and I think I might be interested in this guy I just met in my organization. Problem is I think I’m too scared of something because I feel like I have been rejecting myself. Telling myself if he had found me attractive he would have already approached me. I feel like I’m such a fool because I haven’t really tried talking to him. Maybe I’m being too hard on myself but I would really like to know the guy a bit more where do I start?

Hi, this is my first semester at Cal as a transfer student and I have only gone on 1 date so far. I realized that balancing life here at Cal is not an easy task, given the academic rigor here is quite real. I was just wondering how I can get more dates while spending my time here at Cal. Thanks!​

I have a friend who has a overly controlling and jealous boyfriend. What is the best approach for this situation if the girl knows the situation she is in but feels she cannot talk to him about it?

Hi there, I’ve been feeling mentally drained and I don’t think I’m giving myself a chance to slow down and be in the moment. I’m missing lessons, and not meditating on them. I’m taking it pretty hard on myself sometimes. Have any solid advice?

I’m torn between going home for the summer and staying here for work or a summer internship. I get homesick, and miss my family, but the thought of not having enough for my resume in the near future and lazing my days away at home and spending quality time with the ones I love most seems almost unheard of. What should I do? :(
My friends and I went to a concert but someone in our group got carried away with substance use. It’s because we care about his safety that we told him he couldn’t come with us to future outings unless he learns to control himself. He got offended and thinks we’re punishing him, and it’s frustrating. What should we do?
I have a lot of image issues. This year, it just got worse since I started college and was stressed and kept eating. I put on a lot of weight and now that I’m home for the summer, my family can’t stop talking about it. It stresses me out and just puts me in a bad downward spiral. Help?

I’m starting to feel like I’m not owning up to my mistakes. I constantly regret it when things go wrong and my expectations fall apart. What should I do?
I’ve been feeling a lot of pressure from my peers and from myself lately about finding research opportunities. I’m losing sleep, and I feel guilty taking breaks and naps. It’s almost as if I’m not human when I’m so anxious and busy all the time. I even turn down invitations to go out with friends because my schedule is so packed and it feels terrible. I’m trying to change that, but it’s very difficult. And what if I don’t find one that fits my interest or what if it isn’t one of the better ones?

Valentines day is coming up and yet again, I don’t have someone special to spend it with. All my friends have significant others and I feel kind of bummed out by this. What can I do during that weekend?

I have a big exam in a couple days, but there’s a really rad concert I want to go to that’s the night before. I always studied hard in high school, but now that I’m in college, I just want to have fun. What should I do?

I’m a shy guy. How do I make friends at Cal?

I am having trouble with my family. My dad and my mom fight all the time. Most often, I side with my mom with their arguments and understand her reasoning. Although I love my father, he is extremely stubborn and does not want to listen or change his ways. I really do no know how to help the situation.

My boyfriend is graduating from Berkeley, and will be moving. We talked about this and we are both willing to pursue a long-distance relationship. What are some strategies we can utilize for maintaining a healthy long distance relationship?

It is well into the second semester, and as my roommate and I are becoming more comfortable with each other, I am starting to notice things about her that never bothered me before. To be honest, sometimes I become so irritated that it takes all my energy to not blow up at her. What should I do?

This is my very last written blog post to you all. I am passing on the torch of being a Love Cafe barista to new, eager writers. This has truly been such an incredible experience and I am so grateful. I thought I found my niche already at UC Berkeley; however, after researching the various organizations that UC Berkeley has to offer, I realized that I have tasted only a sliver of all the amazing opportunities offered at this top university. You can sure bet that I will be signing up for new things during my last few years at UC Berkeley. Now, with only a few days left of summer before we start this chapter in our lives, I thought I would pass on a few words of wisdom to you all.
