Cornell University strives to cultivate a caring community in which individuals are encouraged to intervene on another’s behalf and to ask for help when they need it. 

Our campus approach

Cornell’s comprehensive campus-wide approach to student health and well-being was recognized nationally and earned it the JedCampus Seal in 2013 and the Active Minds Healthy Campus Award in 2015.

Skorton Center staff members work along the continuum of mental health and well-being: from resilience and stress management to harm reduction and suicide prevention. For more information regarding our approach to mental health initiatives please review our Comprehensive Mental Health Framework (pdf).
