Each Aggie MattersRed Folder

Each Aggie Matters unites the tens of thousands of students, faculty, and staff at UC Davis in an open and affirming dialogue about mental health. It also offers suicide prevention resources and a free, 24/7, confidential text and phone in crisis assistance. We refuse to stay silent about such an important issue—an issue that impacts us all. Together, we are creating awareness and offering support. Each Aggie Matters is a partner with Each Mind Matters and is supported by the California Mental Health Services Authority (CalMHSA) and Proposition 63, the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA).
