Mental Health Ambassadors Program

The goal of the Mental Health Ambassadors Program (MHAP) is to train members of student organizations on campus on how to facilitate conversations and activities around mental health and wellness in their organizations. Ambassadors will receive training on topics such as mental health promotion, resilience, mindfulness, gratitude, community, mindset, self-care, and self-compassion. Ambassadors will work together to create a plan to create small, simple changes in their organization to enhance its members’ overall well-being.

Applications for the MHAP will be available every Fall semester. Multiple members of a student organization can apply and be accepted into the MHAP. If accepted, Ambassadors are expected to attend a two-half day retreat/training and attend bi-weekly meetings.
