In addition to wellness workshops, we offer educational presentations and trainings for students, staff, and faculty upon request. You can submit a request here. Presentations often focus on mental health topics, discussing Counseling Center services, social justice, and relational health. All of our presentations are designed in collaboration with campus partners or the organizations we are presenting to. If you have an idea of what you'd like, you can request a presentation and work with our staff to create one that fits your interests.

Some examples of presentation topics include:

  • How to support a student in distress
  • Stress, anxiety, and/or depression
  • Mindfulness and self-care
