UHS Wellness Council
 
The UHS Wellness Council is a rapidly growing sub-council dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of the student body. We focus on promoting mental, physical, emotional, social and spiritual health through creative and informative ways. Our council’s mission is to make a positive impact on our students by ensuring that students feel supported through the school community.
 
Within our first year, we’ve launched initiatives such as our mental health board, where we got other students to share thoughts, compliments, and ways to help each other. We raised $100 in a raffle for Eva’s place ( a local youth homeless shelter); held online initiatives (like our 30-day wellness challenge); and much more!
 
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 does a google meet every Wednesday from 3:15pm to 4pm.
