What is UTooMatter


UTooMatter was a phrase first used by the Students of Concern Team to positively address the mental health needs of students on our campus. As a result of the SAMHSA Garrett Lee Smith Grant that received by Student Health and Counseling Services in 2012, the phrase was launched as a social marketing campaign in the spring of 2014.

The purpose of the UTooMatter campaign is 2 fold: to dispel the stigma associated with mental illness and encourage help seeking and to educate students on the warning signs for suicide. To accomplish the objective of UTooMatter several facets have been added under the UTooMatter umbrella such as ResourcesMatter, ServicesMatter, StudentsMatter, and MentalHealthMatters.  UTooMatter is designed to remind students that every aspect of their lives matter. During the UTooMatter Campaign, as host of opportunities are available such as: trainings, programs, educational resources, and partnership opportunities.

We want our campus body to be aware of available campus and community resources. Students, faculty, and staff can utilize these resources if you or someone you know is in need of assistance. Join us in our efforts to help prevent suicide attempts.  Because at UTM, LifeMatters because UTooMatter!
