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.

CURRENT EVENTS:  Please check back frequently as events are added throughout the semester!

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.

For students interested in becoming Peer Mental Health Advocates, we offer a six-week training seminar that covers issues ranging from depression and anxiety to suicide prevention.  Please contact Dr. Jennifer D’Andrea at jdandrea@wesleyan.edu for more information or to apply to this program.
