The Grad Pad

The Grad Pad is an online, drop-in support space held weekly during Fall and Spring semesters via Microsoft Teams. In this space, you can share your experiences in a supportive group setting, without a full semester commitment. The Grad Pad is open to any graduate student at Ohio University, including OHIO Online, regional campus, and medical students. Students do not have to be a client or currently located in the state of Ohio to take part. 

The Grad Pad is a resource that can be utilized throughout the semester, whether you are seeking services at CPS or not, or as you wait to get connected to services. This service does not replace individual or group mental health treatment.
