Mental Health Resources at the Library
CAPS and Seton Hall University Libraries have partnered to provide a collection of self-help resources geared to promoting mental health and wellness within our campus community. Housed in three locations - Walsh Library, the IHS Library in Nutley, and at the CAPS Office (Mooney Hall, Room 27) - the collection is designed to encourage education around common topics of interest to students. The collection was funded by the Great Minds Dare to Care grant, a university-wide collaborative suicide prevention initiative focused on student wellness and mental health. Topics covered across the collection include general stress management, conflict resolution, perfectionism, insomnia, anxiety, coping with chronic pain, exploring and accepting gender identity and sexuality, mental health in the context of race, body image issues, substance abuse and addiction, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These books can help give you the tools to help yourself or a friend or loved one in need. Books are available through the standard lending procedures of the library.
