I am feeling…fine?
Mental health matters! As Lisa Olivera said, “Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you doesn’t mean you can, should or need to do it alone.” Engineering students struggling with depression, anxiety, troubling thoughts or just feeling overwhelmed have free and convenient resources to help:
Contact FAMU Office of Counseling Services (OCS) directly by calling (850) 599-3145 to schedule an appointment. You may request a crisis appointment. Students will be given an appointment based on their availability. Students may also access BetterMynd for 24/7 crisis counseling, by calling (844) 287-6963. This is a free service to FAMU students. BetterMynd also provides individual therapy services, group therapy, and workshops. With BetterMynd, students may get an appointment in as little as 48 hours.
Have access to FSU’s tele-mental health treatment options via Zoom (HIPAA link) as well as FSU’s after-hours crisis hotline. To initiate these services, just call 850-644-TALK(8255) during office hours (8-4 pm) for tele-mental health services, and at any other time for crisis services.
Reserve the Breakroom
The Breakroom (B-226H) is a private space for students to take care of personal mental health needs—recharge, relax, and check in with yourself. You can use this private, quite space to talk with a trusted counselor virtually, practice self-care, pray, meditate, or just let your emotions out. Take advantage of privacy, mood lighting, USB and laptop charging, relaxing activities and emotional health tools. This isn't a place to study or socialize, but a space where you can be alone to take care of your mental health needs. It is open from 9 am – 5 pm on normal business days. Please reserve a 50-minute session at our Picktime site. Questions? Drop us a line.
