You’re Not Alone Mental Well-Being Campaign

You're Not Alone.

This poster campaign highlights UChicago students, staff and faculty sharing their stories with the campus community, highlighting challenges they may have faced as well as how they take care of themselves. Unfortunately, the full launch of the poster campaign was halted due to University classes moving to virtual learning. 

For Autumn Quarter 2020 and beyond, we have tailored the You're Not Alone poster campaign to be virtual as well. UChicago Student Wellness is cognizant of the many issues students, faculty, and staff are facing during this time, and we want to create community and support around this new reality.

Do you have a mental health story you would like to share? Contact Cassidy Phillips at cswade@uchicago.edu to get details about how you can get involved!

During the 2017-2018 academic year, UChicago Student Wellness conducted a comprehensive Campus Health Needs Assessment, engaging diverse campus partners and students to identify priority needs and develop action plans to address them. One of the three primary needs identified was mental health and well-being.

To focus on this topic, the Wellness Advisory Board (WAB) developed the "You're Not Alone" poster campaign to change the narrative around mental health and to promote help-seeking behaviors. This poster campaign highlights UChicago students, staff and faculty sharing their stories with the campus community, highlighting challenges they may have faced as well as how they take care of themselves. Unfortunately, the full launch of the poster campaign was halted due to University classes moving to virtual learning. 

For Autumn Quarter 2020 and beyond, we have tailored the You're Not Alone poster campaign to be virtual as well. UChicago Student Wellness is cognizant of the many issues students, faculty, and staff are facing during this time, and we want to create community and support around this new reality.
