The life of the mind can be a tough place for mental health. By sharing resources and experiences, we can work together to reduce shame and promote mental wellness for all students and faculty. This is a curated list of blogs, articles, and apps that may be of use to graduate students and advisors who are dealing with issues related to mental health. Please let me know of sources that have been useful to you so that I can consider them for inclusion.
