Supporting Students’ Holistic Well-Being

Submitted by Thom Janini, janini.4@osu.edu

The Student Life Student Wellness Center has scheduled eight interactive workshops throughout Spring semester for our faculty and staff to gain knowledge related to supporting students’ holistic well-being, management of stress and substance use, and preparing participants to host difficult conversations and refer students to campus resources. Faculty and staff can register to attend our Guiding Students to Wellness workshop to learn skills such as active listening, motivational interviewing, and hosting difficult conversations with our student community. Our Recovery Ally Training is designed to train attendees in becoming a Recovery Ally to support our students who are in or seeking recovery from substance misuse. Both workshops discuss campus resources as well as navigating these topics through COVID-19.
