Mental Health Education

Student Affairs offers a number of programs designed to help students, faculty and staff support those experiencing mental health issues. These programs aim to:

  • help provide timely, professional, compassionate care to students in distress
  • raise awareness about the personal and developmental impact of mental health problems
  • help reduce the stigma associated with mental illness
  • provide information and support to members of our community who are supporting individuals experiencing mental health challenges
  • encourage people to talk and help create more openness about mental health


Student Wellness Services (SWS) offers a number of student-only, multi-session wellness groups and one-time events. These aim to provide participants with the opportunity to learn skills to improve their health and well-being while also connecting with other students and health professionals. SWS also has a number of different trainings designed to help students, staff and faculty support others. 

Please see the SWS SWS Groups, Events & Trainings website for more information.
