3. Mental Health Moment

Spring 2022 mental health groups, workshops, and trainings

From therapy groups to non-therapy support programs and training opportunities, there are a range of offerings during spring quarter to help you actively (and proactively) manage your well-being.


NEED TO TALK?

24/7 consultation from a counselor is available to UW students through My Student Support Program (My SSP).
If you are feeling overwhelmed, concerned about a friend, or you’re not sure what you need but you’d like to talk, My SSP is a great option. My SSP provides same-day, confidential mental health and crisis intervention support, 24/7 and in multiple languages. Connect via phone, online chat, or the My SSP app.
