We at UDCC understand that often students and those in their support system would benefit from immediate access to resources outside the confines of formal mental health services. Below, we have provided links to additional resources related to a wide range of mental health concerns, so as to offer tools that may be helpful in supporting emotional wellbeing.

These are intended to offer informal education and support, and the information we provide is not meant to be a substitute for formal assistance from a mental health provider.  

Resources for Students

UDCC always wants to be available as a resource for you. But we also recognize that students often want to learn more about their mental health and wellness concerns. We hope that you can arm yourself with the knowledge to make smart decisions about getting the help you need and being at your best on your journey to wellbeing.


YOU@Dayton has a wealth of resources available on a wide range of wellness topics, including vetted articles and helpful suggestions for improving mental wellness. Available for free to all UD students, faculty, and staff!

Campus Resources

Additionally, UD has developed a Step-Care Model that highlights additional resources available on campus so that students can proactively improve their mental wellness and get needed support.

If you have questions or concerns about your own unique situation, please come through Drop-In Hours at the Counseling Center in Gosiger Hall, or give us a call at 937-229-3141.

Resources for Faculty & Staff

Faculty and staff have frequent and meaningful contact with our students. You are likely to be in contact with students who would benefit from a conversation or ongoing services with a mental health professional. On our faculty and staff resource page you will find a summary of services and recommendations for referring students for counseling. Do not hesitate to call us with any specific questions (937-229-3141). We are grateful for your role in helping students make use of our services.

The faculty and staff resource page also includes recommendations for linking to mental health services if you yourself are struggling with mental health concerns.

Resources for Parents

The transition from high school to college can be an exciting time of growth and development but also a challenge for first-year college students -- as well as for their parents and other family members! The primary goal of the Parent Resources page is to give brief, practical advice to college-bound students and their families to help them prepare for the transition to college. These resources also include tips for you as a parent, as things change for you, too. Finally, parents will also find a list of common student stressors and what you as a parent can do to help your young adult from a distance.
