A group of undergraduate and graduate students passionate about mental health awareness, education, and resources. Students who are trained by Counseling Services to be a resource for their peers.
What: A program designed to train students to help identify and assist others in mental health distress. Mental health centered events and peer drop-in hours are organized by the squad to provide resources and advice.
The program was piloted during spring 2020, with 37 students successfully trained and launched as MHSS members. The goal is to continue—and grow—the program during fall 2020.
Currently, the MHSS is based on the NAU Flagstaff campus. However, future goals include piloting the program at statewide sites.
Vision Statement: Our vision is to bring mental wellness to NAU students through education, advocacy, and outreach. The hope is that, in doing so, we will assist in developing a more informed and compassionate campus community. Also, the MHSS aims to decrease stigma around mental health, help-seeking, and self-care.
