Mental Health Support Squad
The Mental Health Support Squad (MHSS) is a group of undergraduate and graduate students who are passionate about mental health education, outreach, and advocacy. Squad members are trained and supervised by the staff of Counseling Services and serve as a mental health resource for peers.
Through drop in hours, member meetings, a general mental health support group, a mentor matching program, and various mental health focused events, the squad works to bring mental health wellness to NAU students.
The Mental Health Support Squad offers services to all NAU students, including those at the Flagstaff campus and statewide sites as well as students who are studying online.
Our mission is to bring mental health wellness to NAU students through peer support, mental health education, advocacy, and outreach
The Mental Health Support Squad of NAU assists in cultivating and maintaining a more informed and compassionate campus community that decreases stigma around mental health needs, help seeking, and self-care practices
