Dear SU Students:  

As the end of the quarter, final exams, and the holidays approach — and the days continue to get shorter — now is a great time to consider all the great mental health and wellness support resources available to you here at Seattle University. Whether you are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, sleep disruptions, loneliness, or other concerns, we are here to help. We hope you will consider reaching out to any of these resources that you might find helpful during your time as a Redhawk:  

Did you know you can refer yourself or another student to the Seattle University CARE Team for some extra support? Upon receiving your referral, we will reach out with information about support resources and an invitation to meet to talk about how things are going and how we might support you. Submit a referral for yourself or a friend here.
