How Resident Advisors and Hall Directors Can Interact with Campus Mind Works

  1. The Campus Mind Works website was designed to simplify access to the wide variety of mental health and academic support resources at the University of Michigan, and provide information to help students stay healthy and manage college life. Use the website to:
  2. Let students know about the free, drop-in education and support groups: On the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, from October to April, CMW hosts free education/support groups in classrooms on North and Central Campus - great for students who are looking for extra support between appointments, or who are more comfortable seeking information and support in a non-clinical setting. Sessions begin with a brief presentation, followed by a support group facilitated by a social worker. Pizza is served! For a list of upcoming dates and topics, visit the groups page.
  3. Schedule a presentation for your residence hall: Contact Stephanie Salazar at sawaters@med.umich.edu if you are interested in scheduling a presentation. We can work with you to tailor a presentation suited to the needs of your residents (or fellow staff members), including:
    • How to recognize signs/symptoms of depression and/or anxiety;
    • Strategies for prevention, self-care, and help-seeking;
    • How to support fellow students with mental health disorders;
    • Campus mental health resources and other support services.
  4. Get a bulletin board kit for your hall: We can email you a printable bulletin board kit with mental health facts, resources, and information on staying healthy. Contact Stephanie Salazar at sawaters@med.umich.edu to request a copy.
  5. Sign up for email alerts about upcoming events and follow us on Facebook
