Foundations Workshop

The Foundations workshops are a core tenet of our Stepped Care Model of wellness. These workshops will run throughout the year and will provide foundational skills and psycho-education for mental health and wellness. 

Below is a listing of the Foundations Workshops we rotate through, offering topics per semester. We are continually creating new content based on the needs we are seeing within the student body.
