How Do You Take Care?

The Department of Resident Life launched the Terps Take Care campaign in Fall 2017 with the hard-copy newsletters and bulletin boards in residence halls across campus. Our first annual Terps Take Care Fair took place the following Spring, in 2018. Since then, we have adapted thanks to the input of students and staff, who help us make these resources more accessible for everyone.

The Terps Take Care campaign strives to educate the campus community about mental health in general and about the self-care strategies necessary for emotional wellbeing. We focus on both the positive ideas of wellness & thriving for all and on reducing stigma associated with mental illness and mental health treatment.

This website is one component of our campaign, collecting our resources, advice, and support for mental health and those living with or in recovery from mental illness.

Take a look around.

Find ways you can take good care of yourself and each other.

Get help when you need it and support your friends when they reach out.

And join the movement to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health.

Terps, Take Care!
