On Feb. 9, Carolina unveiled the Heels Care Network website housing mental health support and well-being resources for students and employees. The development of the website was announced by Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz in Oct. 2021, and was informed by feedback gathered from the Mental Health Summit in Nov. 2021. The website features a collection of all mental health resources on campus, including emergency and 24-hour support options, educational resources and training opportunities, as well as a live chat feature that connects users to peer support. Learn more about Heels Care Network through the formal notice below.
Campus Formal Notice
Dear Campus Community,
The website will serve as a hub for mental health and well-being resources available to Carolina students, staff and faculty, including links to 24/7 support and suicide prevention resources. It also features a live chat and a link to an anonymous care referral form for anyone to report concerns they have for a student.
This campus-wide collaboration is designed to help students, families, faculty and staff — our entire extended Tar Heel community — find the resources they need to support their mental health and well-being.
There are many avenues to find the right support, and our hope is that the Heels Care Network coordinates the numerous resources from across campus into one easy-to-navigate website. The central feature of the website is a comprehensive searchable and filterable database of mental health resources to support all members of the campus community.
We want to thank the campus partners who have contributed to the Heels Care Network website to help ensure the most timely and relevant resources and information are posted. We encourage anyone who may have additions to our mental health resources, organizations or educational content, to provide feedback at care.unc.edu.
