It’s time we make taking care of our mental health as easy to discuss as our physical health.

It’s OK to struggle with mental health

we’ve all been there
The struggle comes with many names: anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, stress and more. They can be brought on by the stress of school and daily life, fear of the coronavirus outbreak, sexual assault, physical and emotional abuse, or racial oppression, to name a few. 
It’s time we treat mental health needs more openly as a society. Let’s Talk About It and make it a normal part of life to get help and heal. Talk with your friends and family, OSU staff and mental health professionals. Let’s start the change.

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.

JED Campus designation

In 2019, Oklahoma State launched an initiative to help prevent suicides and improve mental health awareness through the nonprofit JED Foundation.
The JED Campus program, a four-year partnership, is a commitment by OSU to evaluate and improve programs to better support our students’ emotional health.
