You pursued higher education because you wanted to find your next success. At UMGC, we understand that balancing your coursework, professional commitments, and personal life can be challenging. As a working adult or servicemember, you know what it takes to succeed—and you also know that sometimes, your obligations can start to feel like obstacles.

Sometimes, you need help. You need a support system, a caring voice who’s trained to listen, or community resources that can make you feel less alone. We understand, and we’re here to assist you. That's why we've curated a comprehensive list of mental health and wellness resources that are available for any UMGC student who might need them.
