Peer support education
We are Healthy U, your peer support volunteers!
Healthy U volunteers provide one-on-one office hours* during the fall / winter school year in the RBC Mood Room. Come talk to us about mental, sexual, physical or substance-use health!
We do health promotion via outreach events.* You might have seen us around campus with beer goggles, giving out snacks for a study break or at Sex Pub Trivia! Check out our events section to see our previous events.

The Health and Wellness Team
Hello! I am a Psychiatric Nurse and the Health and Wellness Educator for the University of Manitoba! I provide health and wellness information and guidance to students individually or interested groups on campus. I am also the co-coordinator of the Healthy U program. Previously, I’ve worked within clinical and community mental health and have a passion for increasing mental health awareness and practice in thought work. Outside of my role, I enjoy going to the dog park and travelling – anytime near the ocean is a plus!
Hello! I'm the Health and Wellness Program Assistant. I help with the day-to-day tasks in the Health and Wellness Office. I also created the Healthy U website! My favourite health topics are safer sex, health promotion and intersectionality. I am in the BA Psychology Honours Program with a minor in Women's and Gender Studies. In my spare time I enjoy going for walks around the city, spending time with friends, and playing dnd.
