#ThisIsUCDavis is a UC Davis campaign centered on three core values: diversity, mental health and resilience. This campaign aims to bring together the campus community featuring opportunities for student engagement, mental health support and a shared commitment to supporting student mental well-being during COVID-19. 

We would like to thank the UC Davis Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, UC Davis Student Health and Counseling Services and Healthy Davis Together for making this campaign and mental health project possible.
