The Student Mental Health Committee is an initiative to improve a culture of well-being on campus by de-stigmatizing mental illness and creating positive environments that allow students to thrive. This year Vice President of Student Affairs - Kayla Spencer who is highly trained and experienced in the mental health sector will chair the mental health committee. Events and Programming will include Stress Less Week, Sexual Consent Week hosted by Waypoints, and many other exciting campus events and activities.

Last summer (2016) we renovated Kings’ Lounge to become a space that is collaborative, bright, and will provide an environment that is relaxing and supportive. Come by and visit our new Wellness Space!
