In my role as Mental Health Promotion Coordinator, I have the privilege and the pleasure of working collaboratively with colleagues in Gannett (and in offices and departments across campus) to assess, implement, and evaluate support resources for students, faculty & staff. I think of “mental health” as one aspect of the overarching concept of “health” in general. My place within the Health Promotion department allows me to work closely with a creative team of health educators to advance healthy lifestyle behaviors in the service of academic and life success. Additionally, I am excited to participate in several multi-disciplinary teams that address direct student services, policies & practices, and community education and training around mental health and well-being.
