Supporting Student Mental Health

We know that mental health issues can interfere with the quality of life for college students and certainly with academic performance. Resources and support are available. The below guides were created by the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, University Health and Counseling Services, and the Office of Prevention and Education at Northeastern in collaboration with Northeastern Active Minds

Please reach out to UHCS 617.373.2772 to speak with a staff member if you have any concerns about a student.
