The more you know about alcohol and other drugs, the better equipped you are to make healthy choices.

The college experience is a time of personal growth and change; this can be both exhilarating and challenging. Sometimes, these challenges can be stressful and interfere with your academic, social, or emotional adjustment to college. If this seems to be happening to you, come and see us at the Center for Health and Counseling Services. We can help you get back on track in a safe, caring, and confidential setting.

Wellness is Now Peer Education

Wellness Is Now Peer Education

The Wellness Is Now (WIN) Peer Education program is an ever-growing and developing segment of the Center for Health and Counseling Services. WIN works to provide the education and resources needed to introduce each student to the different levels and components of Wellness. By increasing the awareness and importance of Wellness within the Ramapo College community, students will be better able to define their personal “health and wellness” and work at developing their constant and continual growth.

Our programs will focus on any combination of slices on this Wellness Wheel:

The late Head Coach of UCLA’s basketball team and ten-time NCAA national championship victor, John Wooden, created the “Pyramid of Success” in order to inspire his players. WIN Peer Educators aim to inspire college students the same way Wooden did while utilizing his “Pyramid of Success”. Click on the image below to enlarge it.

Our office is located at the beginning of second-floor E-wing, E-211A.

Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, and Fighting the Stigma

Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, and Fighting the Stigma

Students, faculty, and staff can stop the stigma! How?

Educate yourself on college student mental health. Learn about the Counseling Center resources: visit our website, visit our Center when you are on campus, call us and ask about our services, invite us to present for your class, residence hall, or student group.

Talk openly about mental health. Talk about your own efforts to learn new ways to cope. Share ways in which you see others learning about wellness and mental health.

Reduce stigma for seeking help. Offer compassion and discreet discussions regarding disclosures of emotional concerns, treatment, academic exception letters, and OSS accommodation letters.

Encourage bystander intervention. It is quite likely that if you are noticing another’s distress, they may not yet be receiving help. Keep in mind that no “ideal” interventions actually exist, and that saying anything at all is far better than saying nothing– or being a bystander.
