Graduate Student Health & Wellness Committee

As the Department of Psychology becomes a worldwide leader in innovative research, we also strive to become a leader in health, wellness, inclusion and diversity. With this vision in mind, the Graduate Student Health & Wellness Committee is devoted to promoting a culture in which students are supported and valued. The committee comprises faculty and student representatives from each of the department’s program areas: Clinical Science, Cognitive Neuroscience, Developmental, Industrial-Organizational and Legal Psychology.

Recent initiatives have focused on facilitating access to resources aimed at improving health and wellness, including identifying sources of stress, sharing strategies that promote well-being, and collaborating with faculty and student members within and outside of the Department of Psychology to strengthen our community as a whole.

If you are interested in joining the committee or would like more information, please contact our committee at You can also follow us on Instagram.
