Care Advocate Program

CMU prides itself on being a community that cares deeply about the health, well-being, safety, and success of our students. Students living on campus have access to many support services and resources, including the Care Advocate Program, which has provided dedicated mental health support for students living on campus for more than 25 years. Mental health and emotional distress encompass a wide variety of issues – including depression, anxiety, financial issues, academic concerns, alcohol use, grief and loss, roommate issues, sexual assault, suicide, eating concerns, and more. As licensed mental health professionals, Care Advocates can help students transition to Central Michigan University successfully.

The Launch Project

To help support students making a successful transition to Central Michigan University, the Care Advocate team provides interactive programming including communication & relationships, loneliness, boundary setting, decision making, accountability, resiliency, and stress management. The Launch Project is designed to help students develop skills and strategies to be successful personally and professionally. Live workshops are available during both the fall and spring semesters and recorded sessions are available 24/7.
