Students, faculty, staff, and teaching assistants are essential when it comes to preventing suicide and promoting help-seeking behaviors among their peers. UHS offers consultation with concerned third parties.

Dr. Drozd joined the UHS team in 2016, with extensive experience working in college counseling centers. Drozd has especially enjoyed working with first-generation college students, students with relationship difficulties, and those struggling with depression and anxiety.
“My favorite thing about working students in this traditional age group is that they are at a tender and promising stage in life,” Drozd says. “They’re not so set in their ways, and they have a lot of options.”
In addition to seeing students individually and in group settings, Drozd says a big part of his job is helping students navigate the health care system on their own for the first time. He also sees students around campus as a Let’s Talk provider.
