We know that traditional counseling isn't right for everyone...

diyHelp can come in a variety of formats and we want to support you getting the help you need in a way that works for you, whether that’s through counseling or suggesting things you can try on your own. Just like your physical health, you need to strengthen your mental health to stay healthy and manage the challenges of life.

Join UMaine Active Minds to meet with other students dedicated to fighting mental illness stigma or read about mental health issues that college students face.

(And if at some point you decide you’d like a little more support from one of our counselors, you’re always welcome to make an appointment.)
