UNCG will mark Mental Health Month in the coming weeks. This will be a time when students are encouraged to ask – ask for help, ask for information, and ask a friend, “Are you OK?” This message not only fits perfectly with the UNCG culture of care, it also addresses a deep societal need.
Some offerings this month:
Mental Health Screening Day
This will take place on Thursday, Sept. 12 from noon to 2 p.m. There will be two screening sites available on campus: Office of Multicultural Affairs (EUC ground floor) and The Counseling Center (Student Health Center, 2nd floor).
Visit studenthealth.uncg.edu to complete an online screening. Bring it to the event to meet one-on-one with a mental health professional.
