UHS strives to promote, protect, and restore health and well-being. We are an integrated health care facility that fully integrates our prevention, medical, and mental health services. Within UHS, the Prevention and Campus Health Initiatives team is committed to creating a healthy and safe campus and community using public health tools of data, communications, capacity building and policy, systems and environmental change. This work is informed by our values of empowerment, authenticity, creativity, data-informed practice, and equity.

This Assistant Director for Mental Health Promotion and Suicide Prevention will be one of three Assistant Directors in our unit, focusing on violence prevention, high risk drinking prevention and mental health promotion and suicide prevention. While your work will focus on decreasing the risks of mental health issues and suicide on our campus and in our community, as a team we are all working together to reduce the root causes of many of our campus health concerns including power, privilege, racism, and discrimination. Your team members will work across all our issue areas in functional teams focusing on data, communications, coalition building, training and education, policy and health equity.
