Per The Chancellor’s Message on Monday, Oct. 11, 2021, Tuesday, Oct. 12, will be a Wellness Day for students and classes will be canceled. Today and throughout the week, we are offering a variety of resources to support our community. While recent events on campus this semester brought this mental health crisis and its impacts into sharp focus, please know that we are committed to providing sustainable support for our community beyond one day or week.
Community Support Centers
We will convene spaces across campus, as detailed in the tables below, that will be staffed with experts from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), the Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine and School of Social Work. We encourage students, faculty and staff to come together, process their feelings and talk about their experiences.
Other resources are also available:
- Peer-to-peer mental health resources and a helpful self-screening tool
- Peer wellness groups, well-being coaches and other wellness info about healthy relationships, nutrition, financial literacy and more
- Peer tutoring and academic support in a broad range of courses
If you are concerned about a student, friend or colleague who is struggling, please read this helpful information provided by CAPS.
Faculty and staff can also reach out to the Employee Assistance Program for resources and support.
Please take all the time you need to take care of yourself and one another.
