Mental Health Information

Helpful Information

The MICaB program cares about the physical and emotional well-being of our graduate students.  If you feel like you need help managing your mental health needs, please connect with Boynton Mental Health Services.

This Power Point presentation contains slides from a recent Mental Health Seminar given by Dr. Matt Hanson, Assistant Director at Boynton Health.  It contains useful information regarding University mental health contact information and resources available for both students and faculty.

Please review this Red Folder(PDF) which contains information on recognizing indictators of student distress and how to respond appropriately.  (Four R's - recognize, role, respond, and resources).  

This recent article(PDF) was published in Nature in March 2018 regarding mental health issues specific to graduate education.
