Wellness Wednesday is a brief, drop-in group designed to generate discussion amongst peers on subjects related to mental health. The discussion will provide a space of compassion, awareness, non-judgment, and curiosity. Some skills will be taught in this group, which are generally drawn from mindfulness and trauma symptom management practices. These skills are beneficial for our general emotional well-being as well for helping to manage distress related to depression, anxiety, trauma, and other experiences.
Each week will focus on a different topic. Come to all eight sessions, come to one, or pick and choose depending on your schedule. Topics covered include an overview of common mental health diagnosis, breaking the stigma of mental health, healthy boundaries, coping with family challenges, self-esteem, and coping skills.
These sessions will take place every Wednesday until Spring break. There are 30-minute sessions offered each Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on the second floor of Gipe Hall.
