Mental Wellness Week | Feb. 20-24
Student Government is hosting a Mental Wellness Week for Students! During this week, students can attend the events all week and they will be open with no cost for tickets! You can check out more about the events during the week down below!
The goal of this week is to release the stigma around mental health, educate students on resources available to them, and continue to advocate for mental health resources on campus. This issue impacts many members of the EMU community and we hope that this week can shed light and increase awareness of mental health.
Some of the events during this week will include:
QPR Training- This training will teach you the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help.
Tabling events- potting your own plant, messages of hope, and resource awareness.
Stretch out the Stigma- A yoga event to practice mindfulness and self-care.
The Impossible Project- Special guest and comedian Josh Rivedal will be doing a stand-up comedian act
*In partnership with Active Minds, CAPS, Alpha Phi Omega, The Disability Resource Center, Omega Phi Alpha, and the Botany Club*

need to achieve academic success. Its services are innovative and utilize technology in unique and effective ways.
There are many ways to utilize the Success Center for Academic support and can reach out at any time for help. Some of their support programs include tutoring, supplemental instruction, peer academic coaching, and success coaching.
