Our Day of Giving may be over, but please click here to still support SCU.


Student Mental Health Programs

Student Mental Health Challenge:  100 gifts made to any of the Student Mental Health Programs will unlock a $50K gift in support of Student Mental Health Initiatives at SCU from the Lutton Family.

The growing mental health crisis across the country highlights the need for Santa Clara University to continue our focus on transforming student mental health services.

Building on our comprehensive campus-wide approach to addressing student mental health, Santa Clara will expand our efforts to meet the needs of the increasingly diverse and complex student body. Implementing a thoughtful, strategic and forward-thinking reimagining process is our best tool for responding to the changing needs of our students.

Our systematic and interconnected approach to mental health includes programs to develop life skills; promoting social connectedness; identifying and responding to students at risk; increasing help-seeking behaviors and providing a comprehensive array of mental health and substance abuse resources.

Examples of Program Expansion:

  • Basic Needs:  while we continue to support the Bronco Pantry and students who are food and housing insecure, our campus data suggests that an increasing number of students report food and housing insecurity.  This dimension of student mental health needs additional attention.  
  • There is a tremendous opportunity to expand peer-related mental health programs.  The Wellness Center and Cowell both support peer education programs; however the growing interest among students suggests that we have unmet opportunity in this area.
This Day of Giving, join SCU's commitment to making mental health an integral part of its mission to educate and care for the whole person.
