Outreach is defined by our center as education and prevention in motion.

Outreach is one way our center can address the growing needs of the University and surrounding community. Outreach programming provides preventative interventions in many areas concerning mental health and wellness.

Outreach presentations may be requested by student groups, academic departments, U of M staff and others in the U of M community. Please be aware that we require at least two weeks notice for outreach program requests.
