Take care of your mental health!

The end of the semester is a stressful time for everyone, and it's normal to feel overwhelmed or anxious. If you or someone you know is dealing with mental health issues, you have multiple resources available to help.

During this time of uncertainty in particular, you may feel increased anxiety and distress. The Boynton Mental Health Clinic continues to provide urgent, in-person mental health services to students not self-isolating or quarantined. Care will be provided in alignment with CDC and MDH recommendations for social distancing. Please call the clinic at 612-624-1444 to check availability.

Boynton also offers telehealth counseling and psychiatric treatment for students who are located within Minnesota. Appointments can be scheduled by calling the clinic at 612-624-1444. Students who are currently in care can contact their providers via the MyBoynton portal. Student Counseling Services also offers phone and video appointments.

In addition, students with mental health disabilities can also receive support and assistance at the Disability Resource Center.

While at the University, it is possible that a friend, classmate, roommate, or significant other may be dealing with issues such as depression, stress, alcohol misuse, and other issues. You can find information that will help you to support these individuals on the assisting students in distress website.
