Douglas College is more than just a college. We are a community that cares and wants students and employees to feel safe, respected, happy, and healthy. The Student Wellness Awareness Team is here to help spread health education and information so these words can translate into action. We hope more students feel connected, supported, and successful as a whole student moving forward.
The Student Wellness Awareness Team is a team comprised of student staff and student volunteers who are keen to spread health and wellness education to their peers, helping to foster healthy lifestyles. The group uses a variety of fun and innovative strategies to promote health on campus. These include college-wide outreach events, workshops, campaigns, interactive tabling, and much more. Peer-to-peer support can be an effective way to help work through challenges, relay important messages, and provide resources.
