Welcome to Wellness Is Now (W.I.N.)

The Wellness Is Now Peer Education program is an ever-growing and developing segment of the Center for Health and Counseling Services. The mission of W.I.N. Peer Educators is to promote awareness and educational programs on wellbeing and healthy lifestyle choices to Ramapo College students. The topic areas include, but are not limited to mental health, suicide prevention, stress reduction, sleep, nutrition, and sexual health. W.I.N. peer educators approach other Ramapo students with empathy, and utilize a harm reduction framework to support students and promote intervention services.

Peer Educators are volunteer students who identify student needs, coordinate ideas and suggestions, and assemble engaging, educational programs to support the Ramapo College community in matters concerning student wellbeing. Examples of activities peer educators will participate in include campus events, tabling, and workshops. Peer educators may collaborate with Athletics, Office of Violence Prevention, the Women’s Center, Greek Life, Residence Life, SGA, Counselors, Health Services Nurse Practitioners, Public Safety, Faculty, and other campus organizations to bring awareness of wellness to other Ramapo students.
