Support Emotional Well-Being at Pitt


Student well-being is a shared responsibility – one that requires each member of the Pitt community to equip themselves with knowledge and skills to effectively support our diverse student body. The UCC is offering a number of ways for members of the Pitt community to enhance their knowledge and skills in supporting the emotional well-being of students.

Flourish at Pitt: Supporting Students’ Emotional Well-Being

Join UCC staff members for a 1-hour virtual session that provides a brief overview of ways to support student emotional well-being and overall mental health.
