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.
