Core Content Areas

Health Promotion has four primary content focus areas:

Alcohol and Other Drugs Prevention and Education

Alcohol and other drug (AOD) use is a top health and safety concern on college campuses. The four focus areas for prevention and education are alcohol, cannabis, prescription drug misuse, and e-cigarettes. Learn more here.

Mental Health Promotion

Mental health is an umbrella term that encompasses our emotional, psychological, and social well-being (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). We focus on suicide prevention, stress management, and mindfulness initiatives. Learn more here.

Sexual Health Promotion

Sexual health is a state of physical, mental, and social well-being in relation to sexuality. It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination, and violence.
