Mental Health & Wellness
The University strives to raise awareness and improve conditions for students experiencing mental health concerns. Many students need help with problems related to stress, anger, depression, anxiety, and other issues. You're not alone, and there are campus resources for you if you need them, including your dedicated building team.

Leading a balanced lifestyle can help you succeed in a number of ways. Health is certainly affected by the environment and genetics, but stress management, sleep schedules, and daily activity all make a huge impact on our overall wellbeing.
There are resources on campus to help:
- University students can access Boynton Health services ranging from dental cleanings and flu shots to eye exams, food pantry, safer sex supplies, and alcohol/substance use services—you can even relax with a certified therapy chicken.
- University Recreation and Wellness offers more than fitness classes. Rent some gear and get outside, check out on-demand virtual programs, or schedule a massage therapy appointment.

Health Advocates are student volunteers appointed in partnership with Boynton Health to assist in sharing health resources within their residence hall or apartment community.
What does a Health Advocate do?
Health Advocates help fellow students with health questions and concerns. They can connect you with campus resources and provide health items like cough drops or condoms.
