MindfulU Student Mental Health Collective

New this semester for ALL STUDENTS!

Creating a space for students to connect with each other and their wellbeing. We work to bring together a community of students who are passionate about supporting their peers, value positive mental health and well-being and who are committed to supporting other students through the following opportunities and initiatives:

Mental Health & Wellness Education events: Members of both the RDP community as well at external oganizations will come to the MindfulU space to share crucial information with students on a variety of relevant topics such as nutrition, mental health habits & supports, addiction, sleep hygiene, time management & goal setting and SO MUCH MORE.

CommuniTea: Transported from the Tuesday morning time slot, CommuniTea will now take place in the MindfulU space. Come grab a free tea to go, or stay and enjoy the many things MindfulU has to offer.

Games & Activites: Come enjoy a selection of different mindfulness activites and games to help to slow down and reconnect to yourself and your peers. Painting, Puzzles, Guided mindfulness exercises and more.

Therapy Dogs: Join Zoey the Bernese Mountain Dog in the loft from 11:30- 12:00 and learn about the benefits of animals on our wellbeing.

Peer-to-Peer Support: Connect with one of the trained peer supporters in the MindfulU space about different struggles you might be experiencing as a student here at RDP and receive support and resources to help you navigate these challenges. This is a totally free and confidential support for students.
