Mental Health

Community health includes mental health. Over the last few years, many of us have invested more significant physical and emotional energy into our physical health than our emotional and mental health. At DU we take a public health view of well-being which includes physical and mental health. 

DU offers a collection of resources to students and employees. As we shift our approach from COVID-19 response to a public health view, we aim to elevate our community's awareness of those opportunities and encourage individuals to take advantage of them.   

NEW!!! Now offering adult Mental Health First Aid training free to all DU community members!

What resources are available to employees?
