The Counseling Center's Outreach Team seeks to improve the self-awareness and emotional well-being of Rider students through providing 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, psych-educational events held throughout the year.  We are also available to co-sponsor small group workshops for special groups by request.

Regular outreach events include:

  • Suicide Awareness week
  • Depression Screening
  • Pet Therapy
  • Eating Behaviors Screening
  • Stomp Out Stigma
  • Denim Day (to raise awareness related to sexual assault)

Upon request and availability, we will plan specific programs of interest to particular organizations or groups.

  • The day, time, and location you hope to hold your event
