Student Counseling Services Advisory Board (SAB)
The SCS Advisory Board (SAB) is comprised of students from all seven Health Colleges and staff from Student Counseling Services (SCS). The goal of the SAB is three part. First, to provide an avenue for students to provide feedback on the mental health and wellness needs of the student body. Second, to gather a community of students who will be informed of the services offered by SCS and who can advocate to and promote mental health and wellness among their peers. And third, to create a team of volunteers who will develop and facilitate various outreach efforts to increase awareness of issues pertinent to HSC students.
Any student from any year of their program is welcome to apply to the SAB, as long as you have not served previously on the board. The SAB meets once each month at the noon hour and lunch is provided. There are a total of eight meetings, September through April, and you will be asked to attend at least six of the eight. The responsibility of an SAB member is to bring ideas and feedback to each meeting, participate in promoting outreaches and workshops provided by SCS to fellow students, and volunteer once per semester at an outreach event. All SAB members who meet these requirements will be eligible for a $100 scholarship in April, a small gift that is our way of saying thank you!
