October Is Mental Health Awareness Month

The staff at the Center for Student Mental Health and Well-being are super excited about sharing programming for the upcoming month of October with the campus community. As we are all aware, October can be a tough time for our students. Additionally, World Mental Health Day is observed on Oct. 10, and the first week of October is recognized as Mental Illness Awareness week. This year, we’d like to increase the awareness of mental health on our campus to help support our students’ mental health and overall well-being.

During the month of October, our staff will be promoting “It’s OK to not be OK” to help destigmatize mental illness and encourage students to reach out for help and to support others. Each week, we will be promoting events and resources corresponding to one of our four Be-Well aspects. Some of the events will be in person, while others will be self-help-type resources and information posted on our social media sites. As a reminder, you can find us on InstagramFacebook and Twitter.

Check out the full Mental Health Awareness Month schedule.

Thank you and happy fall, The Center for Student Mental Health and Well-being
