About Health Promotion, Resilience and Violence Prevention

About Us

Through collaboration and education, Health Promotion, Resilience, & Violence Prevention supports students in healthy decision-making to foster individual and community well-being and thrive at the University of St. Thomas.

Health Promotion, Resilience, & Violence Prevention uses evidence-based and best practices to address alcohol and other drugs, mental health and resiliency education, physical wellness (nutrition, sleep, and disease prevention), and violence prevention for our undergraduate and graduate students.

We provide opportunities for students to improve their health and well-being through four modes of change:

  1. EDUCATION — Promote the development of effective lifelong healthy behaviors through student education, awareness, programming, and marketing strategies.
  2. PREVENTION — Provide evidence-based prevention strategies to mitigate impediments to student success (e.g., flu shots, bystander training, sleep screening, etc.)
  3. INTERVENTION — Deliver coordinated, affordable, and accessible student health and mental health intervention and referral services (e.g., yoga for well-being, wellness coaching, sleep management, etc.)
  4. MIND-BODY SPACE — A dedicated space for students that encourages relaxation, meditation & contemplation to foster the connection between the mind and body.
