About Each Aggie Matters
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. We refuse to stay silent about such an important issue—an issue that impacts us all. Together, we are creating a campus where Each Aggie Matters. 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).
Why Each Aggie Matters
We are all different - and that's a good thing! But we have more in common than we realize...
One in four American Adults lives with a diagnosable mental illness in a given year. But fear of judgment, isolation and discrimination may keep them from getting the help they need and the support they deserve.
Mental health is as important to our well-being as physical health. In fact, the two are inter-related. As with physical health, we can prevent unnecessary suffering if we can identify mental health challenges early or even prevent them by taking good care of ourselves and each other.
