See, Say, Do

The mental health of college students has been a growing concern over the past several decades and recent events have only exacerbated the trend of increasing rates of depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. More and more, members of our community are in need of support, but many of them may not be sure how to express those needs. For those folks who feel like they’re struggling on their own, someone offering a kind word, a listening ear, and helpful recommendations can be a critical lifeline. We believe that supporting campus mental health and well-being is a community endeavor. Caring for every member of our community is a task that we can all contribute to. We hear from people all over the university that they want to help, but they often worry that they’ll do some wrong, make the person feel worse, or they just don’t know how they can help.

See, Say, Do is designed to help you See the signs of mental and emotional distress. Say something compassionate and ask the kinds of questions to help you to better understand the individual’s distress. And finally, we’ll talk about what you can Do to take care of yourself and get the person connected to supportive resources that will help them in the long run.
