MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES

The Teaching and Learning Commons strives to curate resources for our instructors to help promote  health and wellness for our campus community.  Being more informed of the various support services available can make us all better responders should we encounter someone at risk.  For example, the  WVU CARE Team provides assistance and interventions as referrals are made to help students and the WVU community.
