Mental health disorders can impact daily life and overall wellbeing.  They can affect relationships, physical health, and academic performance.  Developing good coping skills, getting enough sleep, reaching out when you need help, and practicing good self-care can manage many challenges and are part of a healthy and productive life.

Students can get self-care tips and learn how to help themselves and friends. To begin, text CONNECT to 833-429-1994.
