Health and Wellness Resources during Covid-19

 

At Vanderbilt, we are committed to helping you, our students, navigate and grow through the rigor of graduate education. We are a community, not just siloed groups. As such, our faculty are committed to helping all trainees, not just those in their own research programs. To extend this commitment, we have assembled a team of faculty to serve as auxiliary mentors for second year students and beyond. Vanderbilt’s auxiliary mentors are willing to provide students with their perspective on academic and professional matters. Students who have completed their first year of graduate study can select an auxiliary mentor(s).

For your students in distress, notes from Mark Wallace

  • If you feel a student is in distress, I encourage you to refer to the Student Care Network’s Helping Others site to identify changes to look for in your students, and when to use the Student of Concern Form to submit concerns for personal, physical, or emotional wellbeing of your students.
  • Should you have a student in an immediate crisis, they may call the UCC directly at 615-322-2571, or click the FOR AN IMMEDIATE CRISIS CLICK HERE bar at the top of the UCC site or home page of the Student Care Network for other options for crisis management.
