Resources for student health and wellbeing

It’s always a good time to continue to check in with your student and encourage them to maintain their study, sleep and eating routines. Below is a list of resources available on campus to promote student health and wellness:

Counseling & Psychological Services: MSU Counseling & Psychological Services (CPS) provides a wide range of services and resources to support students during finals and throughout the academic year. CPS also offers suggestions for talking with your student about their mental health and well-being.

YOU at MSU: An online tool to help students increase their well-being. YOU at MSU provides tips and tools for everything from mental and physical health to friendships and finding balance.

Wellness Coaching: MSU also offers free wellness coaching for full-time students. Some areas where wellness coaching can help include coping with stress, working toward nutrition or activity goals, or improving time management skills.

VITA: Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) provides free tax help to people with household incomes under $54,000, including students. Volunteers assist with basic federal and state income tax returns with free electronic filing available for most 1040 forms. The program runs in the spring and appointments are required.

Health Advancement: The Office of Health Advancement provides prevention and education resources for the campus community (such as sexual health, nutrition, physical activity, stress management, as well as the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.)

Student Health Partners: Following an integrated, collaborative model, Student Health Partners unites the components of the health and well-being for MSU students including prevention, health promotion, public health, medical services, dental services, and counseling & psychological services.

CARE Referrals: MSU's CARE (Campus Assessment Response Evaluation) Program provides a direct way to express concern for your student's well-being. Informing us of your concern may be a critical factor in assisting someone who is struggling. There are many reasons why someone might need help, including, but not limited to: mental health-related concerns, threats of self-harm, suicide or violence to others.
