October is Mental Health Awareness Month at Pitt, and faculty are encouraged to think about how engaging with your students can support their well-being. To assist you with having conversations with students, please visit Thrive@Pitt and the University Counseling Center (UCC) resources and services pages. You may also find it helpful to gain additional knowledge and skills to effectively support student well-being by participating in either the “Flourish at Pitt: Supporting Students’ Emotional Well-Being” sessions and/or the Mental Health Champion Certificate Program.
Faculty and staff should consider their own well-being as well. Self-care tips, resources and support are available by visiting Wellness for Life at Pitt.
