Here are ways our Social Work team can help you:
- Lunch & Learn Seminars: These will be starting 1/19/22 in D3-340. Come learn skills to support your mental health, resilience, academic success, etc.
- Mental Health Screening Day: 1/18/22 will be a day of Mental Health Screenings. You can schedule an appointment and have an assessment done. This can be helpful to identify ongoing mental health issues.
