Self-Help Resources

Studies show that feelings of support have a positive impact on overall well-being. The differences between us make us stronger, but it is important to recognize that we live different experiences based on our differing identities. The Student Counseling Center (SCC) is here as a resource and hopes that all UMB students feel supported and seen. The SCC has created a page of various resources to support students of all identities. Review this page to find a source beneficial to you, addressing the challenges you may face as an individual on your journey to better mental health.

International Student Resources

Living in a different culture, with a different way of living, and around new people, can be challenging, especially with the task of being a student at the same time. Immigration-related stressors can increase the risk of mental illness due to cultural-related distress, social marginalization, and intergenerational conflicts. Students in transition to life in a new culture or country should have support.
