Counseling and Psychological Services is working in collaboration with the OSU community to create the infrastructure needed to impact Well-Being. We are co-designing a healthy campus community and we need your help. Your gifts help to strengthen our community both while at OSU and beyond, whether when students are on study abroad programs, working on internship or teaching through e-campus.
In partnership we can create a campus in which everyone thrives and believes in the possibility for optimal mental health.
