Mental Health Resources

Mental Health in graduate school is usually overlooked, but it’s important to pay attention to your body and mind and use self-care techniques to improve your well-being as you continue your grad school experience.

This page is dedicated to posting mental health resources, such as: self-care tips/activities, crisis hotlines, awareness research articles or blog posts, advice, etc.

📌 Please note that this is not a definitive resource, since the experiences, perspectives, and approaches are diverse across what is accessible to a student’s personal experiences and living situations. The resources in this tool kit share steps and strategies that help outline and provide a foundation for learning, reflecting, and engaging in one’s own personal mental health.
