Counseling Center Outreach seeks to improve self-awareness and the emotional well-being of Rider students through mental health and wellness programming. Our programming aims to provide an engaged learning experience which fosters interpersonal relationships between individuals, with the campus community, and the University at large.
This happens through a variety of different ways. We develop and execute campus-wide awareness-raising, psycho-educational events held throughout the year. We are also available to co-sponsor small group workshops for special groups by request.
Typical outreach events include but are not limited to:
- Suicide Prevention
- Wellness Check-up
- Pet Therapy
- Massage Therapy
- Eating Behaviors Screening
- Stomp Out Stigma
- Denim Day (to raise awareness related to sexual assault)
