May is mental health awareness month. During these times, it’s even more crucial for us to actively check-in on our emotional wellbeing and utilize tools to manage the stressors and challenges we are facing. Today we’re writing to let you know about a new online mental health tool that is now available for the well-being of the University of Michigan community.
SilverCloud is an online platform that is available to all faculty, staff, and students, confidentially and at no cost. It offers programs for anxiety, depression, stress, resilience, or insomnia. Based on cognitive behavioral therapy principles, the self-guided program is available anytime, on any device.
Aimed at providing treatment for mild or moderate issues, SilverCloud allows individuals to manage symptoms using the program’s interactive content and skill-building tools.
The Silvercloud program is not meant to replace existing services in any way, but rather to serve as an additional, time-flexible option for those who wish to manage day-to-day stressors personally and confidentially.
The website provides an overview of options and a brief quiz to help you find the right program for you to get started. You can explore more topics on the signup page.
We encourage you to explore this resource in addition to other resources available to you as a way of taking care of yourself, especially during these challenging times.
