A SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR EVERY STUDENT
Every community has an abundance of community cultural wealth or a collection of knowledge and lessons that can be passed to one another. Every year, thousands of first-gen students begin college and face new challenges they may not know how to navigate.
Thankfully there are many more who have graduated and overcome similar challenges who are sharing their lessons through "stories" on mentor. Through this community on mentor, we hope to help every student feel understood and hopeful about overcoming the challenges they may be facing.
We want to empower every student with the knowledge and coping skills to care for their mental health. But just as some injuries are best managed with the help of a physical therapist, some mental health challenges are best managed with a professional who can diagnose the problem and create a custom game plan to overcome it!
We're bringing together campus resources and amazing community partners who are here to work with you under one place.
LET’S TALK ABOUT "IT"
First off, lets reframe mental health. Having a healthy mindset will help us overcome the obstacles we face. Just like a healthy body will help us overcome illness, injuries and other physical challenges, a healthy mind will help us overcome stressful times.
Because our daily experiences influence our mental health, we've partnered with mental health professional to provide research-supported lessons tailored to first-gen student experiences and challenges.
