Mental Health Matters

Burn off stress
Burning off some energy and getting in tune with your body helps keeps you well-balanced physically, emotionally and mentally.
Get warm & fuzzy
The first Tuesday of every month during the academic year University Health Services coordinates a Pet Hug event to help students manage their stress.
Find your niche
Your relationships with others are key in your staying well. Join a student club and watch your Berkeley community grow.



The Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Dean of Students (AVC/DOS) team is dedicated to helping you maintain a healthy balance while at Cal, including good mental health.

We as a team understand the Berkeley experience can be overwhelming, and that you may, at times, feel like you are the only one experiencing self-doubt, anxiety, or helplessness. Even the most successful students, celebrated academics, and accomplished student leaders have struggled.
