Resilience, grit, trauma-informed support are critical elements of a robust student wellness campaign, but are also guaranteed to fall short of the mark without proper institutional support. These training programs are not silver bullets and will give students a rough idea of the concepts but not how to engage in these behaviors on campus.
In order to get the most value out of implementing a student wellness or mental health training solution, consider investing in a more robust campus initiative. There are a few ways to do this.
- Work with faculty and staff to highlight the program to students.
- Publish materials on social media and around campus directing students to the material and providing positive affirmations.
- Form a student ambassador’s group to drive student engagement in the concepts you are training.
- Connect with student groups and student government to align your training with natural outlets that are available to students.
- Create media that connects your other student wellness and mental health offerings to your trainings.
- Get notable alumni involved to speak about the benefits of these programs and break down the stigma associated with mental health and wellness support.
There are many benefits to taking the initiative approach. These include an increase in efficacy of your training efforts, improved ROI for your existing resources, and improved student outlook on campus student wellness and mental health support structures. At The Resilience Project our goal is to support your institution with the rollout of a full resilience initiative with our knowledge base of marketing assets, handouts, faculty guides, and planners for creating a successful rollout.
