Student Emotional Wellbeing Badge

The Student Emotional Wellbeing Badge helps students understand their mental health and wellbeing and learn more about available resources on campus.

It is no secret that the mental health of college students is an escalating crisis. Over 78% of WVU students reported either moderate or serious psychological distress on the National College Health Assessment (NCHA) in Fall 2021. 

By enrolling in this badge, students can build the skills they need to help manage emotional wellbeing concerns. Their participation provides them the opportunity to reflect on their own mental health and how they are taking care of themselves while providing information about resources that will aid in their wellness. 

To learn more about the specific requirements of the badge, please visit the Badgr site.

Badge Learning Outcomes

  1. Students will be able to describe signs of distress in themselves and others.
  2. Students will be able to confidently identify appropriate campus resources to utilize when in distress.
  3. Students will be able to identify 3 strategies that will promote their own emotional wellbeing.
