 What is CALM?

CALM is a free comprehensive mental wellness program at ISU provided by the MSW program and Counseling and Testing Service. The primary goal of CALM is to promote student well being and improve interpersonal relationships  in order to foster achievement. This includes engaging students across campus, building resiliency, fostering social connection, and increasing awareness of campus resources. CALM is committed to ending stigma around mental illness on campus and providing a safe and open space that promotes inclusion, civility, and caring throughout our ISU community. 

The goal of CALM is to provide mental and emotional wellness to students, staff, and faculty at ISU. It is not intended to be a substitute for professional counseling. If you feel that you would benefit from participating in counseling, please call Counseling and Testing Service (208) 282-2130 to get established with services. If you are in urgent need, please call the crisis line 1-800-273-TALK (8255). If your concerns are life threatening, call 911.
