happyfaceBYO Self-Care Plan

Self-care is not one-size-fits-all, which is why this workshop guides participants in a "BYO" (Build Your Own) personalized self-care plan that will actually work for their unique needs. Guided by our peer health educators, this presentation covers topics and activities such as how to engage in self-care as a student, defining maintenance vs emergency self-care for yourself, healthy vs not-so-healthy coping strategies, evaluating your current self-care, and creating an emergency self-care plan.  

Build Your Own Self Care Plan will provide students with the tools and information they need to reflect on, build, and practice self-care in a way that serves them and is sustainable.
