Mental Health Initiatives

Denison is a member of the JED Campus Program, a leading national suicide prevention program centered on protecting and enhancing college students’ emotional health and wellbeing. In association with this, Denison works not merely to provide clinical care but also to support students in improving their skills for coping with stress and anxiety as emerging adults. We offer mental health trainings to students, faculty and staff to equip them in responding to those who are struggling.

In moments of crisis, we are fortunate to be able to partner with a local mental health organization, Behavioral Health Partners, and a strong local network of clergy.
