Empowerment & Education

Empowerment and education are key in strengthening one’s mental health journey. Being provided the tools and access to resources for coping, healing, and awareness are key in being able to feel balanced and present in our lives, as well as feeling able to be connected and purposeful in our actions. The following resources can help with feeling empowered and educated around different dimensions of wellness and self-development. 

Empowerment & Education Resources
  • Kognito: An online, interactive tool that helps faculty, admin, and staff recognize signs of psychological distress in students; provides hands-on skills training for engaging in supportive conversations and making effective referrals for mental health services.
  • Green Bandana Brigade: A group of individuals committed to destigmatizing mental health and spreading awareness of campus, local, and national resources for students in need of support.
  • Care Team Referral Form: Tool for faculty, admin, and staff to share concerns with Loyola’s CARE Team about students who are struggling emotionally, behaviorally, and academically. 

Belonging & Community

A sense of belonging is crucial to maintaining emotional and mental wellness. Mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, and others are often associated with lack of belonging and at their worst can lead to community and social withdrawal. Being connected to community support helps us to manage stress and often allows for more ideas for ways to cope. The following resources can help establish a sense of belonging and community on campus.
