Mental Health & Well-Being Resources

Main content start

Many undergraduates enter Stanford with low or vulnerable mental health and well-being. This worsens at Stanford and a sense of feeling overwhelmed is particularly pronounced for our first-generation college students. We've created this space to share out resources that may be impactful while on-campus and beyond. Remember, it's OK to not be OK.
