Outreach and Education
This branch of our services allows our staff to meet, educate, and provide support to a large number of Wesleyan students. Our outreach programs span a diverse range of topics and formats; some are designed to provide basic information about our office while others are geared toward particular student groups and/or issues. Our outreach and education program makes it possible for us to connect with far more students than we see in individual and group counseling, and it allows our office to actively participate in and support the Wesleyan community.
WeSupport Workshop Series
Wesleyan Counseling and Psychological Services is accepting applications for the WeSupport Workshop Series. WeSupport is a series of six 1-hour sessions that prepares students to be peer mental health advocates. Participating students will learn about a variety of mental health topics, become familiar with the signs that a friend or acquaintance may be in distress, gain practice talking with someone who is struggling, and become familiar with both campus and community resources. Students who complete all six sessions are eligible to join the WeSupport student group, an active network of peer mental health advocates.
Two concurrent workshops will be held. Students can attend on Tuesdays from 4:15 – 5:15 or Thursdays from 12:00 – 1:00. All workshops are held in 41 Wyllys room 110.
Because of the popularity of WESupport, this year we are asking interested students to complete a short application. To access the application, please follow this link:
Applications are due on Friday, September 12th. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance into the workshop series by Thursday, September 18th, and the workshop begins the following week.
We hope to see you at WESupport!!
