Mental Health Awareness at UNH

Fresh Check Day

Fresh Check Day, held annually in October, brings awareness of mental health resources and coping strategies to college campuses. The program’s primary goals are to:
  • Increase awareness of mental health resources and services available to students at UNH
  • Empower peers to be gatekeepers by understanding warning signs and knowing what to do if a friend is exhibiting signs of suicide or a mental health concern
  • Increase willingness to ask for help if experiencing emotional distress
  • Reduce stigma and misconceptions around mental health and suicide that often deter individuals from seeking help

This year's theme: Wellness Fest
October 12 from 11 am - 2 pm
