Mental Health Ally Program


The Mental Health Ally Program is a volunteer program coordinated through the Student Counseling Service that offers education for faculty, staff, and students on how to engage students experiencing emotional or mental health concerns and refer to mental health and other support services. Mental Health Allies are not trained mental health counselors nor are they expected to provide mental health counseling. Volunteers who complete program requirements will receive ongoing support regarding connecting with students in need and access to resources to share with students. They also will receive a sign and/or a button which they can display to indicate their support and availability for students struggling with emotional and mental health concerns.
