The Peer Health Advocate program supports the mission of the Counseling, Health and Wellness Center to enhance the physical and emotional health of students by providing the William Paterson University campus community with innovative programming and educational presentations that enhance the physical and emotional health of students. Peer Health Advocates are trained to develop, promote, and provide health related outreach programming to encourage healthy decision making. They offer their services to students through educational workshops, CHOICES theatrical presentations, tabling events, collaborating with campus clubs and organizations and hosting substance free events. The Peer Health Advocates serve as positive role models both on and off campus by living healthy lifestyles.
Some examples of programming provided by us include:
CHOICES Theatrical Presentations, Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana, Rx Use and Abuse, Body Image/Eating Disorders Awareness, Stress management, Suicide Prevention, Sexual Assault, Stalking, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Healthy Well Being, Social Norms Campaigns and More… Just Ask!
