Resources For a Healthy College Life

On February 25 we hosted our 3rd Annual Wily Speaker Series on College Students and their Mental Well-Being. While the 2021 Speaker Series panel discussion with Sherri Ettinger and Micah Griffin provided helpful information and tools, we recognize that the topic of mental well-being is extremely broad and all of your questions may not have been addressed at the event. Below is a short list of college mental health resources that we explored while planning our 2021 Speaker Series, and shared with the Wily community after the event.
