Welcome to RoosForMentalHealth!
Our hope is to help cure the stigma related to mental health by increasing awareness of important and common issues.
Our campaign creates opportunities and provides resources to enhance proactive self-care strategies among students, staff, and faculty. We also provide guidance on how to recognize distress in others and how to respond when necessary. Additionally, we emphasize the importance of wellness in our approach to mental health by providing education on the relationships between mental health and sleep, physical activity, nutrition, relationships, and more.
Please explore our website to learn more about our initiatives and mental health topics. Register to attend our online Lunch-n-Learns or watch the recordings. And don’t forget to participate in our weekly quiz question to be entered into a monthly drawing to win a t-shirt. Take the quiz once a week to increase your odds of winning each month!

I allow myself to be who I am without judgment.
