Campus Mind Works’ free, drop-in education and support groups continue this month with a group on Stress Reduction Strategies for Coping with Anxiety & Depression on Tuesday, December 13 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m., Room 165, Chrysler Center, North Campus.
Designed for any U-M student with bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, and chronic anxiety, each group begins with an educational presentation and Q & A focusing on topics which can impact student mental health, including: the importance of sleep, the connections between exercise and mood, how substance use affects mental health, and new research on nutrition and its effects on the brain. This is followed by a facilitated support group session, providing an opportunity for students to discuss challenges they are facing, share successful strategies for managing illness in the context of college life, and connect with other students who may have similar experiences.
These FREE education/support groups are a service of the U-M Depression Center in partnership with the College of Engineering and the Psychological Clinic, and are run by clinical staff from the U-M Department of Psychiatry. The groups are designed for education and support purposes only, and are not intended to be a substitute for medical or mental health treatment.
No pre-registration is required.
