Graduate Well-being Programs

The Well offers a variety of programming, in collaboration with our GradSuccess, Graduate Division, and GSA partners, to address the particular needs of the graduate student community. Graduate students face a unique set of challenges such as isolation, exhaustion, budgetary concerns, and performance stress.

 The Well strives to offer graduate-specific programs so students can learn and interact with other people that share their same challenges and concerns in a safe and productive environment.

To best support the needs of the graduate student community, our Graduate Student Well-being Liaison completes training in mental health topics, such as helping student distress. Previous liaisons have participated in the Mental Health Allies program, planting the seeds of change to create a more accepting and inclusive community in support of mental health and well-being at UCR.

The Well-being Liaison works to provide peer to peer linkage to mental health services provide by The Well and our campus partners.
