  • Davis Alcohol and Other Drug Advisory Group (DAODAG)
    • The Davis Alcohol and Other Drug Advisory Group (DAODAG) examines AOD issues affecting the Davis community. Members develop, promote and support policies and educational strategies that prevent or reduce the consequences of high-risk alcohol consumption. Membership is open to UC Davis students, staff, faculty and other members of the Davis community.
    • If you are interested in joining or learning more about the DAODAG, please call (530) 752-9652 or email Tamara Stirling at
  • Students Against Suicide (SAS)
    • This group functions to raise student awareness of depression, mental illness and suicide. More specifically, the group works alongside the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) through fundraisers and community walks. Suicide and depression are most prevalent in college students, and yet is a very ignored and closeted topic. Our hope is to break down the stigma surrounding suicide and depression and help students and community to feel comfortable sharing their personal concerns or stories. No one should feel alone because they feel unable to reach out and talk to anyone who could listen, help or understand. The ultimate goal of the organization is to build enough support to establish an official AFSP chapter in Davis and create community walks for the entire community and town of Davis.

    • Affiliated with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP)
  • Student Mental Health Coalition
    • The mission of the Student Mental Health Coalition is to unite the mental health student groups and affiliated student organizations together to advise campus leadership, inform students, reduce stigma, allow for collaboration and promote resource transparency.
