The Aurora Center for Advocacy & Education
Confidential, safe space for students who are victims/survivors/concerned people of sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, and sexual harassment

As a student you may experience a range of issues that can cause barriers to learning, such as strained relationships, increased anxiety, alcohol/drug problems, feeling down, difficulty concentrating, and/or lack of motivation. These mental health concerns or stressful events may lead to diminished academic performance and may reduce your ability to participate in daily activities. University services are available to assist you. You can learn more about the broad range of confidential mental health services available on campus via the Student Mental Health Website: http://www.mentalhealth.umn.edu.

CEGE is committed to helping our students bring their best selves to their classes, academic work, and the UMN community. Our department has five trained Mental Health Advocates (MHA). MHA can help support students, or concerned faculty/staff, find mental health resources on campus for undergraduate or graduate students.
