Wellness Is Now (W.I.N.)

Become an educator and activist for wellness on campus!

About Us

W.I.N. peer educators provide educational programs and resources to other Ramapo students regarding mental and emotional health, as well as other wellness issues. The topic areas include, but are not limited to, mental health, suicide prevention, stress reduction, sleep, nutrition, and sexual health.

W.I.N. is a volunteer position for Ramapo students affiliated with the Center for Health and Counseling Services (CHCS). Peer educators approach other Ramapo students with empathy, and utilize a harm reduction framework to support students and promote intervention services. W.I.N. strives to support a community that encourages healthy and safe behaviors through education, personal responsibility, positive social norms, academic engagement and a vibrant co-curricular life. Programs hosted by W.I.N. are open to all students.
