Mental Health


    Telehealth Counseling Services

    Ohio University is aware of the growing concern for mental health and well-being during this time of uncertainty and physical distancing. We want to do everything we can to support our Bobcats, and we want to ensure there is continued access to mental health resources.


    Anxiety Toolbox

    The Anxiety Toolbox is 3-session online workshop focused on better understanding your anxiety and on building skills to cope with anxiety.


    Healthy Breaks

    If you are struggling to take time out for yourself right now, try viewing wellness as a special treat that you get to enjoy throughout any given day. This mindset can help make it easier to adopt lifelong healthy habits. Start small by trying out a few 5-, 10-, and 15-minute healthy break ideas. 

Creating Community


    Student Involvement Center

    The Student Involvement Center acts as a hub for all student activities. You are sure to find a community and get into the Bobcat spirit with family weekends, student organizations, programs, and events! 


    Student organizations

    Student organizations are an integral part of the OHIO community and offer students rich, interdisciplinary opportunities to learn outside of the classroom. There are more than 500 student organizations at Ohio University. 


    Learning communities

    Learning Communities help new students get connected and support them during their transition from home and high school to Ohio University and Athens. Together, you'll take a series of classes, typically a freshman seminar and two general education courses. You'll gain a deeper understanding of your courses, subject matter, and make friends both inside and outside the classroom.
