Mental Health Awareness Month 2023

Good mental health is invaluable as it enables us to effectively manage the daily stresses of life, maintain healthy relationships, make sound decisions, and achieve our goals. 

The College of Liberal Arts recognizes the importance of mental health and offers various degree programs and courses that address and support it. These include music therapy, health psychology, and counseling psychology, among others. In fact, we're excited to offer a course on happiness in fall 2023.

We take pride in our top-ranked psychology department, renowned for its innovative research and groundbreaking discoveries about the brain and potential treatments for mental illness. Our department's rich history underscores our commitment to advancing our understanding of mental health.

As May is national mental health awareness month, we would like to share some inspiring stories about people in the CLA community who are looking out for our mental health.
