Description

Part of the Mueller Center's Wellness Wednesday Series:

Fresh Check Day™ is a celebratory fair-like event that includes peer-run interactive expo booths, free food, music, and exciting prizes and giveaways. It is a loud reminder that your school cares about YOU and your wellbeing.

WHY SHOULD I COME TO FRESH CHECK DAY?
Consider this an event where you can relax and have fun, enjoy some music, food, and learn about how the programs at your school can provide you or your friend support if the stress of college life becomes overwhelming.

The program’s primary goals are to:

Increase awareness of mental health resources and services available to students
Reduce stigma and misconceptions around mental health and suicide that often deter individuals from seeking help
Empower peers to be gatekeepers by understanding warning signs and knowing what to do if a friend is exhibiting signs of suicide or a mental health concern
Increase willingness to ask for help if experiencing emotional distress
