Leadwell

Co-Sponsored by LeadUH and UH Wellness

Learning to lead yourself is just as important as learning to lead others. Through Lead WELL, students will learn the importance of self-care and balance as it relates to leadership. Topics such as time management, stress management, self-care and more will be explored. Development of these skills are crucial to a healthy life and organization.

UH Wellness is proud to offer Mental Health First Aid training to all interested students, faculty and staff. Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses, builds understanding of their impact, and overviews common supports. This 8-hour course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect persons to the appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care.

This training counts as two electives - pre-registration is required.

Reflection

Upon completion of their four hours, participants will be required to complete a capstone reflection paper that will be reviewed by UH Wellness.  This will provide each participant the opportunity to reflect on what they have learned in LeadWell, and what changes they can make in their daily lives to enhance their well-being.  To complete this last part of the curriculum, contact Dr. Patrick Lukingbeal, Director of UH Wellness.  From there, the prompt will be given to each student.
