University raises awareness for mental health education

October 11, 2017

10-6-2017: Quinnipiac University/ Mount Carmel Campus, Fresh Check Day event

Hundreds of students, workers and volunteers came together to bring awareness to mental health education as part of our third annual Fresh Check Day last week on Bobcat Way Lawn.

Fresh Check Day aims to create an approachable atmosphere where students are encouraged to engage in dialogue about mental health. It helps to build a bridge between students and the mental health resources and programs that exist on campus.

The interactive booths were designed to educate and engage students. The suicide prevention booth was a required stop for all students walking through the interactive event.

Students engaged in relaxation exercises, enter raffles and enjoy free food at the stigma-free event.

“It’s really nice to see how much support we have on campus,” said Angelina Otero ’21.

As a school and a community that puts students first, Quinnipiac places our students' health and security a priority above anything else. Our helpful services and friendly staff will ensure a safe and enjoyable college experience.

The university offers a range of services to support the health and well-being of our students. The highest priorities of the staff are to meet the acute health needs of the student population and to provide ongoing health education opportunities as an integral part of the Quinnipiac experience.

The Mount Carmel Campus Health and Wellness Center, located on Bobcat Way, is staffed by a registered nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, while students are in residence.
