Counseling Services

UIWSOM M.I.N.D. Student Organization

UIW SOM Mind Organization

MIND is a student-developed and student-driven organization dedicated to advocating for mental, emotional, and physical health promotion of medical students first at TCOM, and now at UIWSOM. Awareness of, dedication to, and support of holistic health is the key motivation for the development of the group. Based on troubling results from a national survey addressing anxiety, depression, and suicide ideation among medical students, the Mentality Initiative to Nurture Doctors hopes to make mental and emotional health support a core standard for students during their time at UIWSOM, which will provide a healthy base for their future careers as physicians. MIND will be made up of a committee of volunteer students dedicated to mental/emotional health promotion of their peers and colleagues.
