The Department of Resident Life launched the Terps Take Care campaign in Fall 2017 with 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.
Check out these events for National Suicide Prevention Week:
Get involved with us at our annual Terps Take Care Fair, taking place on Thursday, October 10, 11am-2pm on the Hornbake Mall. The Terps Take Care Fair is an interactive mental health resource fair with information, activities, and giveaways from student organizations, campus departments, and local businesses who are committed to creating a culture where we can discuss mental health openly and honestly. We work to decrease stigma and increase awareness from our unique locations, and at the Terps Take Care Fair we come together in solidarity. Register your organization to participate.
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.
