The new program, SC BeWell, provides free resources to support students’ mental health and well-being.
Schoolcraft College now offers a brand-new service for whatever life challenges students may face involving mental health, including stress, academics, relationships, or feeling anxious from having too much on their plate. That new program, SC BeWell, provides free resources to support students’ mental health and well-being.
This program, which launches Nov. 1, is provided to all Schoolcraft College students taking classes.
SC BeWell launches with support of a grant from the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation and The Ballmer Group as part of the Detroit Drives Degrees Community College Collaborative (D3C3). D3C3 is an initiative that supports community colleges in southeast Michigan focused on increasing equitable access to educational opportunities, boosting graduation rates and more.
Through SC BeWell, students have access to a variety of resources, including a mental health support phone line available 24/7, counseling services, self-guided mental health and wellness programs and more. A Wellness Hub is also offered, which includes articles and videos on mental health and wellness topics such as fitness and nutrition; academic performance; mental and emotional health; and more. That Wellness Hub can be viewed at SCBeWell.com.
These services are offered to Schoolcraft College students, including those taking credit courses on campus or through Distance Learning.
“We’re hopeful this service becomes a valuable resource for our students and their mental health,” said Dr. Laurie Kattuah-Snyder, Chief Student Services Officer for Schoolcraft College. “We know our students’ academic success is dependent on having the resources they need, and we’re excited to begin offering these programs.”
