Greetings Brockport Community,

As many of you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has created untold changes in people’s lives, both on campus and within our communities. This is particularly the case for the mental health and well-being of our students.

At SUNY Brockport, we have been working diligently behind the scenes to ensure that we can continue to meet the needs of our students in empathic, streamlined, and efficient ways. In order to best serve the increased number of students requiring complex care and those who might need more general support, we would like to make you aware of a variety of resources available to all of our students – undergraduate and graduate students alike.

As part of SUNY’s ongoing commitment to enhance and support student mental health and wellness, the following are campus and supplemental opportunities for students to seek care and connection.

As we continue to respond to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we also want to be cognizant that students experiencing basic needs issues can be supported through the following resources as well:

  1. BPT Basic Needs provides a number of resources for basic needs.
  2. The Golden Eagle Opportunity Fund provides temporary financial assistance for immediate and current emergency situations, which could involve circumstances beyond a student’s control.
  3. The EagleCares Center application is designed to help students find resources on campus for a variety of concerns.
  4. Foodlink is designed to leverage the power of food to end hunger and build healthy communities.
  5. The Center for Youth has a variety of short-term housing and emergency services for students who are experiencing hardship.

The mental health and wellbeing of our students remains a campus-wide priority. We hope that all members of the Golden Eagle community feel empowered to become advocates of their own mental health and use the resources above to find the support they need.

Finally, please keep an eye out for expanded faculty and staff mental health training and additional mental health programming coming soon.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions: (585) 395-2414.

Best,
