Winter ‘23 Mental Health & Wellness Workshop Schedule

Anxiety Toolbox, RIO (Recognition, Insight, and Openness), and Getting Unstuck workshops are 3-session series; each group meets once a week for 3 weeks. Each session lasts approximately 50 minutes and is led by a trained staff member of the Counseling and Career Development Center.

You will be provided with a workbook at the beginning of the series. The workbooks are provided to help you apply and practice new ideas & information between sessions. It is intended to provide a space for you to gain new skills and awareness within the constraints of a busy schedule. All workshops are FREE and no charge. You can repeat and attend as many workshops as you would like. 

We request that you attend all three sessions, as they are designed to build off one another. We believe that attending all three sessions gives you the optimal opportunity to achieve your goals & objectives. 

Cocoa & Conversation: Self-Care sessions are a time to relax and connect while learning about self-care. No registration is required and students are welcome to drop-in to participate on any of the scheduled dates.

Cocoa & Conversation: Self-Care

Come in for a free cup of hot chocolate or tea and take a few minutes to relax! Connect with others, learn ways to add some self care into your weekly routine, and warm up with a hot beverage!
