Mental Health Resources

During the height of the pandemic, Maya Marder, Aggie Rieger, and Brett Bergmann compiled a comprehensive list of resources for addressing the many and evolving concerns for both physical and mental health during the coronavirus pandemic. The document contained mental health resources for students, faculty, staff, and the Champaign-Urbana community. Those resources were in need of updating, however, and so the resources below replace that document. We thank Maya, Aggie, and Brett for their valuable service to the community in a time of need.
