Campus Coalition for Wellbeing and Mental Health



The Campus Coalition for Wellbeing and Mental Health (CCWMH) is committed to creating the conditions that foster effective thinking, intentional decision making, and a holistic approach to wellbeing—We have a wellbeing philosophy that allows students and employees to flourish and achieve their full potential for the benefit of themselves, the organization and the communities we touch.  Our commitment is to facilitate holistic development and endeavors to help all Blue Hens thrive now and throughout their lives.  


Our Mission

To advance wellbeing at the University of Delaware, the coalition constructs and maintains a comprehensive framework that supports innovations and opportunities for communication, education, services and policy development. The coalition works to enlist perspectives from all students, faculty, staff, alumni and families in the work necessary to enhance their own individual wellbeing and that of others, as well as the collective wellbeing of the entire UD community.
