Mental Health

We seek to create and sustain an environment in which everyone is valued and able to do their best work.  UVA offers many resources to support the well-being and mental health of students, staff, and faculty.

If you have a concern, David Auble, (auble <AT> virginia <DOT> edu)  serves as a mental health advocate for BMG and he would be glad to talk with you.  He’ll respond to emails within 24 hours and he can help you navigate the available resources and guide you to appropriate sources of support.
