Mental Health Resources

Students studying

The University of Connecticut acknowledges that students’ mental and emotional health is an important part of their academic, professional, and personal success. The Mental Health Resource Center is available for support and resources to assist students that are facing challenges that may be interfering with their overall performance.

The Mental Health Resource Center has a full time Case Manager that can meet with students to help them better understand the challenges they are facing, equip them with resources and ensure students have access to the support that they need. Often times, students will find resolution to their concerns within 1-3 appointments. For students presenting with concerns reflecting a need for ongoing services, staff will link students to off-campus programs that can provide these services. All sessions are confidential unless the student gives written permission to disclose specific information or when the statutory law mandates disclosure.
