The Community Wellness, Education & Safety Network is made up of university programs and response teams that provide support, prevention and intervention for students in crisis. The network helps provide crisis assessment, resource referral and advocacy.

Overview

The Community Wellness, Education & Safety Network aligns new and existing OSU student services and programs focused on crisis prevention, intervention, advocacy and situational stabilization and assessment. It provides response resources to assist students in crisis. The network will include new personnel who will have appropriate training, credentials and experience to develop and provide crisis response programs and services.
