In addition to resources available on the Counseling & Student Development Center’s website, we’ve gathered our most relevant and requested mental health outreach resources in one place. These resources are intended to be used by Bucknell students, staff and faculty in your groups and classes. Our goal with these resources is to empower you to learn more about mental health and how you can support yourself and others, to help make the college years more satisfying, rewarding and productive. Our programs are designed to help you grow in self-understanding and use your intellectual and emotional resources as effectively as possible.

How to use this collection of resources

We have organized these resources by category — Self-Help, Supporting Others, Meditation & Mindfulness, and For Staff & Faculty. Hover over each category, or visit our Resources By Topic page to see what’s available. In many cases we have included a video recording of one of our staff members presenting on the topic for 15-20 minutes. Additionally, you will often see a PDF of the presentation slides and/or a Guide on the topic with discussion questions. You can also check out our full Guide to Emotional Health and Wellbeing to get an overview of the topics folks tend to find most helpful.

Even when our staff availability is limited, our hope is that by providing these resources, you are able to independently bring this topic to your student group or class, using the presentation video and discussion questions to explore and facilitate a conversation about a particular topic with your group. This collection of resources is a place to start these conversations and encourage everyone in our community to prioritize mental health and well-being.
