Mental Health Ambassadors Program (MHAP)

Are you part of a student organization on campus? Want to be trained on how to talk about mental health and incorporate mental health promoting practices into your group? Then apply to be a Mental Health Ambassador! This program aims to help student leaders facilitate conversations about mental health and wellness in their own organizations, and use strategies that promote well-being throughout their organizations. These conversations will help students in your organization learn about their own well-being, break down falsehoods about mental health, recognize the community of support around them, and understand the resources available on campus.

Applications for the MHAP will be available every Fall semester. Up to two members per student organization can apply and be accepted into the program. All student groups are welcome to participate, including Greek letter organizations. If accepted, Ambassadors are expected to attend a two-half day retreat/training in January 2022 and attend bi-weekly meetings throughout the spring semester. Applications for Fall 2021 will open on Nov. 1st and will be open until Nov. 15th.
