Invite a Counseling Center’s Mental Health Ambassador into your club meeting or classroom!

The Mental Health Ambassadors are peer educators trained by Counseling Center staff to present on mental health topics, including Counseling Center Services, Stress Management, Healthy Relationships, Conflict Management, and Suicide Awareness. They can also show a short film, It's Real, featuring students' real stories and experiences with mental health. Consider bringing one of these interactive, relatable presentations to your club meeting or classroom! To learn more or to schedule a program, please visit and/or contact Emily Lazar at
