Mindwell 30 Day challenge and MUN Listener Program
Become an Active Listener
MUN Listeners is a peer support service which trains students, faculty and staff to become active listeners online so they may help students in need of support. The program is free, anonymous and confidential. MUN Listeners offers students an opportunity to connect with a supportive person and engage in text-based one-on-one conversations. This program is not a mental health crisis resource and listeners do not provide therapy.
For MUN Listeners, there is no prior requirement to be trained as an active listener. One may simply sign up to be a listener and then receive active listening training to become qualified to provide active listening support.
You can sign up for MUN Listeners here.

Take a Mindfulness Challenge
The Mindwell 30-Day Mindfulness Challenge encourages students, faculty and staff to undertake mindfulness training for five to 10 minutes per day.
The goal of this challenge is to help the university community experience less stress, more joy and peak performance in academic and professional settings. Maintaining mental health is an important part of our wellbeing, and evidence suggests that mindfulness training helps to improve stress, resilience and performance.
The challenge will launch on Monday, March 6, 2017. You can participate here.
Thank you for your time, and I hope you will join us for Mindful MUN this March.
