Staff members in the Skorton Center for Health Initiatives collaborate with student organizations and other student leaders, as well as faculty and staff, to support the health and well-being of the Cornell campus community. If you’re interested in getting involved in health and wellness initiatives, consider joining one of the student organizations dedicated to health and well-being below:
Cornell topic-specific coalitions
Coalition on Mental Health
The Coalition on Mental Health serves as a forum for staff, faculty, and students to share information and engage in discussion related to emerging trends, research findings, and campus initiatives in support of mental health and well-being. Members of the Coalition examine student health priorities including the promotion of mental health, suicide prevention, alcohol and other drug abuse, and hazing. The Coalition will also address the intersection of these priority areas with sexual and interpersonal violence and bias.
A Cornell NetID is required to access the following PDF documents. Please contact us if you need this information in another format, or if you are having trouble accessing any of the links in the documents.
