UC Student Government is seeking Mental Health Ambassadors.

As our university continues toward a third century of creating strong students and leaders, we feel that protecting and supporting student mental health is an integral part of the University of Cincinnati’s mission. The services offered by the Counseling and Psychological Services Office are of paramount importance to students in their academic, professional, and personal lives – especially with the stressors of college putting a strain on mental health more broadly.

The Undergraduate Student Government hopes to create a program that can amplify the mission and voice of the CAPS Office, and can serve as an additional resource in a hopefully growing support system for students. This program, the Mental Health Ambassadors, will serve as a student extension of the CAPS Office, and can be focused specifically to the college level so that students in need may be best serviced.

For more information, Mental Health Ambassadors
