Our main objectives currently include the following:

  • Provide consultation and advice regarding mental health programming and service
  • Advise the Union regarding insurance and budget issues that are impacted by student mental health
  • Identify educational/informational needs and emerging issues of students regarding mental health
  • Identify and address barriers related to seeking care and provide user feedback around accessibility and ease of use
  • Organize and participate in campus-wide events related to mental health
  • Promote mental health awareness and wellbeing for graduate students through awareness and anti-stigma campaigns
  • Serve as a resource for graduate students seeking mental health care on campus or in the community through providing resources for self-referrals
