Care on Campus 10 signs of Mental Illness Resources

The UIC SCHOOL OF ART & ART HISTORY is committed to the health and wellness of our students, faculty, and staff. We are working hard to create a stigma free environment that promotes a culture that ends stigma around mental health conditions and promotes support, awareness, and empathy.

Each semester the UIC SCHOOL OF ART & ART HISTORY will offer a series of interventions, workshops, and events that focus on what we are calling Critical Care.

THIS INITIATIVE encompasses addressing mental health community building, and creating and maintaining a balanced lifestyle. Holding the space in our creative practices to maintain our personal well-being, give into public exuberance, maintain relationships, face our emotions head on, and build community is what makes it possible for us to continue to do the important work of artists and scholars in the 21st century.
