About Us

Many University of Michigan students have mental illnesses which require ongoing care. The Campus Mind Works website is 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.

Campus Mind Works Mission

  • Provide resources and information to help U-M students succeed in college while managing a mental illness
  • Provide information for families, faculty, staff, and students focusing on ways to support a U-M student with a mental illness

Is this the right website for me?

  • If you have a psychiatric emergency or need help right away, call Psychiatric Emergency Services at 734-936-5900.
  • If you have been diagnosed with a mental illness and are looking for ongoing support resources, you are in the right place. Get started with our “Help yourself” section.
  • If you are looking for mental health support services, visit our resource database to find appropriate campus and community resources.


Campus Mindworks is the result of the vision of Waltraud (“Wally”) Prechter, a tremendous supporter of the University of Michigan and the Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Program. Following her lead, the Depression Center submitted a proposal for this program to the U.S. Department of Education with support from former Congressman Joseph Knollenberg. The website was developed by the University of Michigan Depression Center and the Division of Student Affairs, in collaboration with schools and colleges across the U-M campus. Campus Mind Works is intended to work in concert with MiTalk, a website designed for all U-M students to learn about mental health and wellness issues.
