Supporting Our Tar Heels
We want all Tar Heels to succeed and thrive while they are at UNC-Chapel Hill, and that starts with ensuring our graduate and undergraduate students have access to mental health resources.
Carolina offers on-campus services and partners with well-being and mental health leaders, such as the JED Foundation, which focuses on the mental health of teens and young adults, to help serve the campus community.
“We want our students to know that all of us are here to support them. If a student needs a helping hand, they can reach out to our Dean of Students team, an RA if they are living on campus, or any member of our faculty and staff. And of course, our counselors at CAPS are available to support 24/7,” said Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Amy Johnson.
The University launched the Heels Care Network last spring to provide a hub for mental health and well-being resources for the entire Carolina community. At care.unc.edu, Tar Heels can find information on 24/7 support, resources about suicide prevention and peer support, well-being programs and events, a live chat to talk with other students to find help and an anonymous care referral form that anyone can use to report concerns they have about a student. The website includes a comprehensive, searchable and filterable database of mental health and well-being resources.
