Peer Support Group

Peer Support is a group with the set intention of supporting one another as fellow students. College can be exciting, and it can be challenging: big transitions, questions about the future, growing independence, learning to balance school alongside work or other life responsibilities, stress, challenges in adjusting to a new place, etc. You're not alone in this experience! Others are feeling it, too. 

Day and time are set by current group member availability. Hope you take this leap and join Peer Support! We're in this together.



Relaxtion Room

DCB has a Relaxation Room for students to have a hands-on space for practicing self-care. The Relaxation Room supports mental fitness, just like a cardio room supports physical fitness. This space has stations designed to help students find ways to relax. In addition, it provides items that can soothe and calm: neck/shoulder massager, weighted blanket, light therapy lamp, and more. It's a cozy space to take some time for yourself and unplug for those needed moments of self-care.

The Green Bandana Project is a program driven by student volunteers dedicated to preventing suicide through promoting help-seeking behavior and increasing awareness of vital mental health resources. After a short orientation and basic suicide prevention training, student participants can proudly attach or display a green bandana on their backpack, bag, or person, signifying they have pledged to be a caring ally that can be approached for mental health and suicide prevention information and resources.

To learn more about the Green Bandana Project, head to DCB's Green Bandana resource page and explore the Green Bandana Project website:
