Within the United States, one in two adults will experience at least one mental illness during their lifetime. However, less than half of these individuals have received professional/mental health services to address their issues.

Did you know that October 6 to 12, 2019 is Mental Health Awareness Week? Although mental health is important all year long, we especially reaffirm our commitment to providing support and advocacy for our community during this special week.

Partnering with the Wellness Center, Student Activities, and the Psychology Department, Stevenson|Cares offers a series of health and mental health education events. These events are providing great opportunities for us to be educated about various mental health topics, break the stigma of mental illnesses, and empower members of our community to take good care of themselves.
