Faculty & Staff Lounge

Welcome to CWC’s UF Faculty & Staff Lounge!

The “lounge” was created to support our campus community with resources specific to collegiate mental health which supports our faculty and staff in working with university students. The lounge includes a variety of resources designed to educate, improve skills, and help support students experiencing a range of challenges, including feeling down, increased anxiety, difficulty concentrating, strained relationships, substance use, and/or lack of motivation.

We invite you to join us in creating a campus culture of care by visiting your lounge to learn more about how you can support mental health among students and to develop skills that foster healing, growth, and development. Visitors will have the opportunity to:

  • Register for CWC’s Faculty & Staff workshops and presentations.
  • Download resource guides with tips, strategies, and information related to campus resources available for students in distress (e.g., Orange Folder).
  • Access mental health-related content to add to syllabi and academic courses.
  • Access digital resources, such as videos, graphics, presentations, etc.
