Mental health promotion and suicide prevention is a shared campus responsibility at UNI. 

WE are a community of students, faculty and staff. 

WE all can make a difference by caring about the type of community WE collectively create at UNI. 

Together, WE are cultivating a UNI community built upon a foundation of shared connectedness and belonging.

Please take some time to review the information on this web page.  It has been designed to be a central resource page that consolidates information about mental health supportive services, on and off campus resources, ways to get involved and mental health promotion and suicide prevention activities on our campus and in our community.
