To effectively promote students' mental health and well-being, it is essential for faculty and staff to prioritize their own well-being in all aspects of their lives. Oswego provides services and resources that cater specifically to employee mental health and well-being.
Helping a Student
If you're worried about a student's well-being, it's essential to act quickly and seek support or guidance from a qualified professional. Be aware of signs of distress that could indicate a mental health issue, crisis, or thoughts of self-harm or harm to others. The Office of Dean of Students has put together a helpful resources page with some of the most popular and in-demand resources for staff and faculty.
