Maroon Mental Health Matters

Maroon Mental Health Matters is a training program designed to give participants the skills to help someone experiencing mental health distress or crisis. The course is tailored specifically for the University of Chicago community. It uses didactics, role-playing, and group discussion to help participants appropriately recognize and respond to mental health distress or crisis. By the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand what mental well-being is and what impacts it
  • Identify indicators of mental health distress and crisis
  • Respond to and support someone in distress
  • Refer and connect someone to appropriate resources
  • Promote help-seeking behavior and foster a community of care.

Prior to Maroon Mental Health Matters, Student Wellness offered Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) to train our campus community. However, after several years of administering MHFA, we found the need for more accessible and tailored programming to fit the unique needs of our community.
