Wellness Wednesday:  11/4, Learning About Addiction
12:00 noon – 12:45 pm

Join us for a conversation led by Zarra Marlowe ’21.  Zarra will discuss addiction, with focus on stigma and harm reduction. Learn about how addictions can form, bust some addiction myths, and explore strategies to support and approach friends, family, or community members. This talk is geared towards non-healthcare workers, with an emphasis on skills anyone can practice.  Sign up here.

Buddy System Module 2 Registration

The Buddy System is a program created to support students’ mental and emotional health and build community during a time when connecting with others will be especially challenging.

You will be matched with a Buddy from a different class year, as a way to get to know someone over the course of a module and to check in on each other from time to time. This is not a counseling program, but we hope that it will provide some additional peer support and interaction that you might be missing due to a large portion of the student body being remote.

Sign-ups close November 4. Feel free to reach out to us at buddysystem@macalester.edu if you have any questions or want to learn more!

Let’s Talk

Let’s Talk takes counselors out of the Hamre Center and into the campus community with the goal of providing easier access for students who might not find their way to us. These are confidential, informal drop-in consultations with no appointment necessary. Just drop in during the scheduled times to sign up for a 15-minute time slot. Our Let’s Talk page gives more details and a FAQ.
