Mental Health Toolbox

Distress stemming from situational problems, immediate crises, and longstanding mental health concerns can make everyone feel scared and isolated. We even feel helpless when we see friends or loved ones experience mental health problems too. In order to help empower you and those around you, we here at Clark University Center for Counseling and Personal Growth have put together a Mental Health Toolbox to meet those overwhelming needs. We hope that this library of resources can be used in conjunction with your therapy or simply to gain some relief, direction and self-help.

We also seek to benefit from the wisdom of Clark students. If you have found a website, app, video or national organization that you found particularly helpful, we would like to know. Please send any ideas to CPG Director, Megan Kersting, at mkersting@clarku.edu.
