Mental Health Guide

This Mental Health Guide was compiled for students, faculty, and staff. It provides a range of information resources, including: links to mental health authorities and support groups, advice from the Drexel Counseling Center, news and lifestyle articles, emergency contacts, and various Drexel services. There is recreational content, too. Readers can explore library materials, cook a new recipe, attend a virtual concert, and much more! As a work in progress, the guide is updated periodically. Please take some time to explore different sections. (There's probably at least one resource you didn't expect.)
