Campus Mental Health Action Plan
In response to the growing need for expanded mental health services across campus, OSU’s Division of Student Affairs has launched a Mental Health Action Plan in order to bring together additional communications, services and programs for both students and employees.
2021 Action Plan at a Glance
The “Let’s Talk About It” awareness campaign is designed to encourage open dialogues about mental health struggles and shine a spotlight on the growing range of mental health support and resources available to OSU employees and students.
As students navigate the spring semester, the need for dedicated days off will be more important than ever. OSU has designated February 3, March 4 and April 13 as official Wellness Days where no classes take place and special activities will be available across campus.
Expanded Wellness Programming
The Department of Wellness has planned an extensive array of programming, events, videos and more for the spring semester to assist with improving mental health for our campus community.
JED Campus Status
As part of our ongoing commitment to improving mental health on campus, OSU is proud to be a part of the national JED Campus program. Working with campus leaders and professionals, the JED Foundation helps to create campus-wide prevention and intervention strategies and advises on best-practice mental health policies, programs and services.
Training to help others
OSU has expanded a variety of training opportunities for both students and employees to better assist friends, colleagues and loved ones in need of mental health support.
Dedicated email account
A new email account is available for questions or concerns about mental health services on campus, or for those who want to share your resiliency story. Reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
