Mental Health Resources

We all struggle with our mental health from time to time, which can manifest in many ways, including exhaustion, anxiety, or just feeling sad. It’s essential to develop healthy habits and practices that we can draw on when we need them, but it's also okay to ask for help.

The Columbia resources on this page are here for you any time you need support. If you have any questions or suggestions for additions, please reach out to [email protected].

Columbia Health and CUIMC Student Health Service offer external resources that are not diagnostic but are meant to be educational and to help you better understand behavior. Columbia does not endorse or accept responsibility for external websites.

  • Self-assessments from CUIMC Student Health Service - Take self-screening/online questionnaires about depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, eating disorders and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder. These do not substitute assessments with a mental health professional.
