The Wellness Team plans and promotes programs that encourage engagement, well-being, and a sense of belonging within the Amherst community, e.g., Bullet Journaling, Project Connect, Mental Health trainings, etc. We also reach out and partner with other student-run organizations and affinity groups to discuss how mental health affects racial, athletic, and occupational identities.
Outreach through social media
The Wellness Team’s social media focuses on sharing the resources that support mental health within the campus. We also advertise the months that support specific Wellness topics, such as National Sleep Awareness Month (March) and Mental Health Awareness Month (May). Don’t forget to check out our Instagram and Facebook for more information!
Accessibility to training
The Wellness Team provides multiple trainings for mental health topics to the student and staff body, available as scheduled and by request, e.g., the Peer Support Skills Training (PSST), Responding to Students in Distress training.
