We provide information and awareness in the areas of mental health and psychological concerns. Sometimes this is within a partnership with other University departments and student groups; other times this is a program of our own. Please check out the following programs:

Beyond the Backpacks Series
Diversity Week Mindfulness Color Walks
Happy Diversity Week Mountaineers! Looking for new strategies for self-care to reduce stress and prevent midterm or finals burnout? Maybe you just want to get out and meet other students? If you answered yes to any of these questions, please feel free to join us for Carruth Center’s Color Walk. The color walk is open to all abilities. You will learn about mindfulness and how you can use color walks to ground yourself to the present moment by noticing the many colors around you.
Mindfulness Walk held 9/19 will be on sidewalks and modifications will be made for students who wish to remain in the Mountaineer Room and practice mindfulness indoors. Mindfulness Walk held on 9/20 will be a part of the Wake Up and Walk program through the Carruth Center. Participants will walk on gravel paths as well as concrete sidewalks.
