Four freshman and sophomore students who are trained as Health Advocates through a program at Boynton Health Services are working with the Stamping Out Stigma campaign. The project they have committed themselves to for this academic year is updating the Ulife Line website with content that is student friendly (Link to the site through UCCS's website: http://www.ucs.umn.edu/resources.html). In addition to updating the website, they plan to create four newsletters on the topics of stress management, eating disorders, depression and anxiety. They will consult with psychologists and other resources to develop newsletter content. The first newsletter will be released at the end of January. Students will publicize the website through advertisements in the residence halls. If there are projects related to SOS for which you would like student input, please know that the students are willing to consult (contact Michelle Trotter, firstname.lastname@example.org).
