UHS Wellness Council

The UHS Wellness Council is a rapidly growing council dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of the student body. We focus on promoting mental, sexual, physical, and nutritional health through creative and informative ways. Our council’s mission is to make a positive impact on our students by ensuring that students feel safe and supported through the school community.

Within our 3 years of running as a council, we've launched multiple initiatives and events throughout the school including dog therapy days, a Youth Speak conference, compliment grams where we've gotten 800+ submissions, how to deal with stress, mental health boards where we share our worries and ways to help each other, online initiatives; and much more! One of our main events every year is Wellness May where we spend a month dedicating to spreading awareness and helping the student body with mental, physical, nutritional and sexual health! 

If you’d like to learn more about what we do or how you can get involved with the council, feel free to reach out! Our Council meets in the library every Wednesday from 3:15 pm to 4:15 pm!
