Parents

As a parent, you know that you are an important part of your student’s support network.  Research has shown that even though students become more autonomous during their young adult years, parents remain a primary source of health information. To this end, we want to inform you about mental health services and resources available at the University of Michigan (U-M) and let you know what you and your student can expect. 

Here you will find information about mental health services at U-M, tips for helping your student prepare for a healthy transition to college, and ways you can help your student maintain good mental health.
