The Student Mental Health Ambassadors work through with the University Counseling Center to develop new outreach events and programs throughout the year.
- Assist with the WakeWell Pre-Orientation Program: This program is designed to introduce incoming first year students to WFU’s comprehensive approach to wellbeing. SMHA’s who are interested have the ability to help facilitate the Pre-Orientation Program with the Office of Wellbeing and the University Counseling Center.
- Assist with facilitating the Get Well-Oriented Sessions at New Student Orientation during New Deac Week for all first year incoming students
- Assist with facilitating the Step Up! WFU Bystander Intervention Sessions during Extended Orientation for all first year incoming students
- Brovember: During the month of November, the SMHA’s focus on de-stigmatizing mental health for students who identify as male on the WFU campus. Through tabling events, guest speakers, and the Pumpkin SMASH initiative, they aim to increase conversation around mental health within the campus community.
- Assist with Signs of Stress (SOS) Campaign
- She Thrives Initiative: A series of events and an educational awareness campaign aimed to reduce stigma around mental health for women of color on the WFU campus. This collaborative initiative is held in March and works with the University Counseling Center, the Women’s Center, Intercultural Center, and more!
