The Counseling and Mental Health Center (CMHC) Student Organization seeks to promote mental health for all UT students.
We support CMHC by:
- educating students about CMHC resources
- providing opportunities for students to help reduce stigma about mental health
- engaging students in promoting mental health on campus
- involving students in planning and developing CMHC events such as Suicide Prevention
Week and the UT Unplugs Campaign.
We also sponsor fun social events, offer opportunities to volunteer with mental health organizations in the Austin community, and invite guest speakers to address mental health issues at our meetings.
Meetings are held bi-weekly on Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 in The POWER House, located in SSB room G1.400H. For more information about us, please contact our Vice President for Internal Affairs, Elaina Olmo
