The Clothesline Project

Who knew a simple cotton T-shirt could hold such power?The Clothesline Project is a dramatic display that calls for an end to violence against women. Survivors of abuse and violence tell their stories on T-shirts, which are then publicly exhibited in a colorful show of solidarity that dispels the myths about violence against women, and spreads powerful messages of recovery and hope. Presented by the Mental Health Association in Orange County, Inc.

Think Your Drink

So many beverages are out there for our consumption: soda, energy drinks, vitamin drinks.  Some of these drinks appear “healthy,” but it is our job as consumers to become Label Detectives and find out what we’re really putting into our bodies. Please join the Wellness Center and Cornell Cooperative Extension for an interactive fun activity to find out what’s hiding in those “healthy” drinks.

Student Health 101

In a recent survey, half of all college students said they’d been so stressed at times they couldn’t get their work done or enjoy social activities during the last semester.  All of us have the power to take control of our health in order to get the most out of life.  Stop by our info table and meet the college’s nurses and mental health counselors.  We’ll share ideas on how to take care of yourself and your mental health with information on stress management, healthy relationships, sleep strategies, nutrition, safe sex, and more. We’ll show you how to get help for yourself and others.
