We hope to create greater awareness about mental health and wellness.
SEAS Wellness produces compelling, informative content, delivers presentations in introductory courses on critical wellness resources, and shares our work with a network of partner organizations. The below resources were created by our group in efforts to promote the usage of wellness resources.
We have delivered this presentation in 8 introductory courses: CIS 110, CIS 120, CIS 160, CIS 350, ESE 111, ESE 112, ESE 150, & MEAM 110
Our guide directs students to to different wellness resources, including helplines for immediate assistance, learning centers for academic support, and talk therapy consults. This guide can be helpful for quickly finding a resource that meets one’s specific needs.
