Health Promotion Education and Outreach

Health promotion is the process of enabling people to increase control over and to improve their health (WHO website).

The University of St. Thomas' Health Promotion, Resilience, and Violence Prevention provides opportunities for students to improve their health and well-being through four modes of change.

Education: Promote the development of effective lifelong healthy behaviors through student education, awareness, programming, and marketing strategies.

Our Peer Health Educators focus on the following areas of well-being:

  • Alcohol and Other Drugs
  • Violence Prevention

Prevention: Provide evidence-based prevention strategies to mitigate impediments to student success (e.g. flu shots, bystander training, sleep screening, etc.)

Intervention: Deliver coordinated, affordable, and accessible student health and mental health intervention and referral services (e.g. yoga for anxiety, wellness coaching, sexual assault counseling, sleep management, etc.)

Mind-Body Space: A dedicated space for students that encourages relaxation, meditation & contemplation to foster the connection between the mind and body.
