Healthy Relationships Month

fEBRUARY is HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS MONTH

 

For the month of February, the Center for Student Wellness will be hosting events all about how we can build, maintain, and thrive with supportive connections for Healthy Relationships Month. We want students to know they are loved, they are seen, and they are needed within our community.

The theme for the month is #PiecesofConnection, reminding us that we all have a role to play within our friendships, partnerships, classes, clubs, and campus community.

Everyone at the Center for Student Wellness is so excited for all the activities planned this month, and we hope that you will join us for whatever you can! Our Instagram, @uofuwellness, is the best place for the latest information but here is a preview of everything to come this month:
