Our students and library users face many mental wellness challenges.  Librarians are accustomed to pointing the way to the counseling center.  What if we could do more to help students access resources and help? In this webinar we will discuss the creation of Marshall University Libraries Mental Health Initiative.  With very little funding, our team creatively found unique ways to engage students and connect people to the resources that they need. By utilizing the tools and resources librarians already have at their disposal, we can enhance our university’s culture of kindness and become a welcoming space to all.

Sabrina Thomas is Research and Instruction Librarian for Marshall University. 

Kacy Lovelace is a Research and Student Success Librarian for Marshall University. 

Michelle Alford is a Library IT Consultant Sr. with 15 years of experience in academic libraries and patron facing services.

Leah Tolliver is the Director of Wellness Programs and the Women’s And Gender Center.
