About the Mental Health Work Group
In 2001, Vice President for Student Affairs, E. Royster Harper, charged a new group to develop and maintain an overall view of the mental health system for UM Ann Arbor students - the Mental Health Work Group (MHWG). The group developed a report that included 12 campus wide recommendations . The group continued after the report was disseminated "to serve as guardians and ambassadors" for the recommendations and to provide "support and direction" for college student mental health services for our campus.
Since the academic year 2008-09, the MHWG has embarked on a new course to develop deeper and comprehensive collaborations to support college student mental health and to support furthering the recommendations in a way that takes into account both unit strengths and strengths that supersede each unit - in short, to enhance the overall system of mental health care by following the adage of "the whole is greater than the sum of our parts".
The units that are part of the MHWG and individuals representing them, are listed below. Please feel free to contact Todd Sevig (chair, contact information below) if you desire more information about our group.
