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 is composed of a diverse group of Honors College students, including embedded H.O.P.E. Peer Mental Health Educators. The Wellness Committee's goals are to foster a culture of wellness in the Honors College and to dismantle the stigmas surrounding mental health. Throughout the year, the Wellness Committee organizes numerous programs and initiatives, such as, Honors College Wellness Week, which puts on a series of programs focusing on the 9-dimensions of wellness, Wellness coffee breaks, Wellness Wednesday social media takeovers, and other wellness advocacy related events. In addition, the Wellness Committee leads a chapter of Letters to Strangers, which is a global, youth-run organization committed to destigmatizing mental illness through peer letter writing campaigns.
