MISC is excited to introduce the Mental Health Working Group (MHWG). This group is here to support the mental and emotional wellness of all iSchool students. MHWG will be accepting members in January, so stay tuned for that announcement in the New Year! Until then, we want to hear from students directly regarding what you would like to see this Working Group do for you! Suggestions and comments from all students are welcome.
