Wayne State University declares Feb. 18 Mental Health Day

Wayne State University has declared Thursday, February 18, 2021, Mental Health Day for the campus community. 

School of Information Sciences Associate Dean Tom Walker encourages students, faculty and staff to take time to focus on their health and emotional well-being during these challenging times and to take advantage of the resources offered by the university, whether dealing with medical concerns, time management, mental health, or reflection and self-care.

"I remain proud to be part of a profession that values accurate, rich, timely and well-organized information. And to witness how those values have been applied during these unprecedented circumstances that have involved a global pandemic, extreme political unrest and continuing racial strife. It has been gratifying to learn how librarians and other information professionals have rallied to keep their own clientele and the general population informed about the current medical crisis, politics and social justice issues as well as to ensure that their professional information services continue even while working remotely." - School of Information Sciences Associate Dean Tom Walker
