Supporting Mental Health as a Campus Community
We're here to help you support the students in your life.
University faculty and staff may be the first to notice when a student is struggling. You may also be the person a student feels most comfortable going to for help. This puts you in a unique position to support mental health on campus. We're here to help you support them.

Notice. Care. Help. for Graduate Students
Graduate students have many overlapping roles in the university where they may need to address the mental health of others. Graduate school is also a time when many students experience more stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges of their own. When we can address mental health as a community, everyone benefits. Join other graduate students in this interactive training as you learn how to use the Notice. Care. Help. framework in your personal and professional lives. Topics include learning the signs that someone’s struggling, reaching out and offering help to someone you're concerned about, creating a community of care, de-escalation strategies, and finding support for yourself.
