Wellness Breakfast – October 29th!

In order to raise awareness about mental health issues on campus and beyond, the Geograd Wellness Committee holds periodic breakfast events.
Wednesday October 29th, 8:00-10ish – SSC 2240
Information about local mental health resources will be scattered about for viewing.

Pop in as you please, there will be coffee, tea and juices, muffins and fruit available. At 8:30ish scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, and sausage will be delivered.

The food is first come first serve; but either way there will be plenty of coffee to chat over.

Donations will be accepted to help fund the Wellness Committee’s future events. Last year we helped with the talent show, developed an online resource list for Geograds and raised $60 for Kids Help Phone. This year we want to do more.
See you Wednesday morning,
Wellness Committee
