Mental Health Events & Resources

A banner with multi-colored leaves that says Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental health is so important!

Navigating both school and our daily lives can put a lot of stress on our mental health, but no one is alone in this struggle. We all have times where we feel overwhelmed, overworked, anxious, or depressed. The UMA community is always here to support our fellow Moose when we need extra support!

In support of Mental Health Awareness Month, UMA Libraries and Counseling Services (with help from the SGA, Student Support & Development, and the UMA Wellness Committee) has created this collection of resources, as well as planned a couple of events to support mental health. 

Please join us for these events in May

Finals Week: May 1-6 Stop by Katz or Nottage Libraries, the Augusta or Bangor Fitness Center, or the Testing Center to pick up a stress ball to help you deal with any finals stress! 
May 3 at 12pm Join Counseling Services in Katz Library for a workshop on how to make your own stress ball. All supplies will be provided! Add this event to your Google Calendar
