At Texas Tech University, we know that the success of our students, faculty and staff relies on their ability to access resources to maintain wellness.

 

Wellness comes in all shapes and sizes – meditation and yoga, working out, talking it out.

The Beyond Okay initiative was started by Texas Tech Risk Intervention & Safety Education (RISE) to focus on student mental well-being. It became clear quickly that a campus wide effort to address all kinds of well-being was necessary.

Beyond Okay is designed to offer every member of our campus community the resources they need to cope with whatever is going on.
