Extending Mental Health Awareness Month through Library Resources

Nature Rx: Improving College Student Mental HealthVincentian personalism infuses the work and spaces of the DePaul University Library. In this spirit of respect for each and every individual, we honor and observe Mental Health Awareness Month. As this month draws to a close, we would like to expand this awareness by highlighting Library resources that support the diverse mental health and well-being needs and challenges of the DePaul community.

Databases: The Library subscribes to a number of databases containing psychology and mental health related content for personal reading or research. Keep in mind that many other library databases may also be interesting to explore for mental health articles written through different disciplinary lenses: some examples of other subject areas include art, education, literature, or sports & exercise.
