The goal of the USG Mental Health Initiative is to increase awareness of mental health by connecting students with information about campus resources. We hope to reduce the stigma regarding seeking help while starting a positive dialogue that is crucial to a safe and supportive community.
A central component of this initiative is our second annual Mental Health Week being held from February 25th-March 2nd, 2013. The week’s events will touch on subjects ranging from stress to mental illness through movie screenings, speaker panels, and online content. Through this website, we intend to streamline access to information and show students that they are not alone in seeking support.
We hope you will explore this website to find blog posts including messages from University staff and students, a schedule of events, profiles of peer advisors, photographs from the What I Be campaign, and more.
Thank you for engaging in this crucial conversation! Feel free to provide feedback here.
