May is Mental Health Awareness Month: Announcing new location for Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience

May 8, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Everyone has to take care of their mental health, and maintaining emotional well-being is an important part of an overall healthy lifestyle.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and many local and national organizations use this time to raise awareness about mental health and provide support, education and advocacy for the millions of people living with and impacted by mental illness.

It’s not always easy to talk about mental health, and one goal of Mental Health Awareness Month is to help everyone feel more knowledgeable and comfortable when it comes to mental health conversations.

There are many ways to show support for your friends, family and colleagues. Start by reaching out, checking in and listening with compassion. All month long, a mental health awareness campaign across U-M will highlight messages of support and connection.

Confidential mental health counseling, referrals and information are also available at no charge for all Michigan Medicine faculty and staff through the Office of Counseling and Workplace Resilience.

The office is excited to announce a new location at 5124 Medical Science Building I, C-Wing. You may also contact the office at 734-763-5409 or
