Mental Health

Mental Health at HPW:

Our goal is to increase social support around mental health and mental health promotion in order to foster a community of caring, help seeking behavior, and a sense of belonging for SFSU students.

We do this by:

  • Increase suicide prevention knowledge and skills in the campus community
  • Increase sleep promotion in the campus community
  • Increase campus wide mental health promotion & self-care opportunities for students
  • Implementing various programs, events, and awareness campaigns
