This guide serves to promote the MU Mental Health Initiative, a partnership between MU Libraries, MU Counseling Center, and MU Women's Center, the Don't Call Me Crazy Series.

 

 

Don't Call Me Crazy: Marshall University Mental Health Initiative

 

 

Libraries hold a unique position as places to hold civil conversations on challenging subjects as well as purveyors of credible information in which to frame those conversations. As part of our responsibility to further the University's public service commitments, we are partnering with  Counseling Services and the Women's Center to destigmatize mental wellness challenges so that our students, faculty, and staff are empowered to resiliency through quality information and education. Ultimately, our goal is to provide safe places for students, faculty, and staff to explore and discuss information, ideas, and ways to access help.

 

 

The Don't Call Me Crazy Series will feature 3 major components:


Don't Call Me Crazy: Resiliency through Education (panels, research guide, MU Reads display)


Don't Call Me Crazy: Resiliency through Art (art exhibition)


Don't Call Me Crazy: Resiliency through Community (support services, group meetings, study rooms)
