Let's Be There for Each Other and Make Mental Health a Priority Every Day
Mental and emotional health is an essential part of your overall wellness. And it deserves your ongoing attention and care.
We're Here for You
If you or someone you know could use some extra support, you can find resources, events, and professional counseling here. Scroll on to see what's available.
Where to Start? Check-in with an Online Screening
How are you feeling today? As you navigate life's ups and downs, pay attention to your thoughts and feelings, your energy level, and your overall mood each day. Just starting your day by asking yourself, “How am I doing today?” gives you a moment to focus on yourself. If you'd like to dig a little deeper, you could try an online mental and emotional health screening.
How Can You Feel Better? Talk with Someone
If you're having a tough time or just have some questions, talking to someone like a friend, or loved one can make a big difference. Or, perhaps you'd like to explore professional and confidential counseling. Michigan Medicine Office of Counseling & Workplace Resilience and Faculty and Staff Counseling and Consultation Office are here for you at no charge. If you'd like to see a counselor in your community, or online, all U-M health plans cover counseling.
