About Us

Many University of Michigan students have mental health disorders which require ongoing care. The Campus Mind Works website was designed to simplify access to the wide variety of mental health and academic support resources at the University of Michigan, and provide information to help students stay healthy and manage college life.

The website was developed by the University of Michigan Depression Center and the Division of Student Affairs, in collaboration with schools and colleges across the U-M campus. Initial funding for the Campus Mind Works initiative was provided by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

Campus Mind Works is intended to work in concert with MiTalk, a website designed for all U-M students to learn about mental health and wellness issues.

Campus Mind Works Mission

  • Provide resources and information to help U-M students succeed in college while managing a psychiatric disorder;
  • Provide information for families, faculty, staff, and students focusing on ways to support a U-M student with a psychiatric disorder;
  • Facilitate access to psychiatric services for the subset of U-M students who have ongoing psychiatric disorders.

Campus Mindworks is the result of the vision of Waltraud ("Wally") Prechter, a tremendous supporter of the University of Michigan and the Heinz C. Prechter Bipolar Research Fund. Following her lead, the Depression Center submitted a proposal for this program to the U.S. Department of Education. Special thanks to Congressman Joseph Knollenberg for his support of this proposal and his efforts toward improving mental health care for residents of the State of Michigan.
