Wellness Committee

The Honors College Student Wellness Committee was developed based on findings from a six-week mental health task force that indicated a desire for more peer-support initiatives. The Wellness Committee's goals are to foster a culture of wellness in the Honors College and to dismantle the stigmas surrounding mental health. The Wellness Committee is composed of a diverse group of Honors College students, including embedded H.O.P.E. Peer Mental Health Educators. Throughout the year, the Wellness Committee organizes numerous programs, such as leading a chapter of Letters to Strangers, which is a global, youth-run organization committed to destigmatizing mental illness through peer letter writing.
