Feeling down
or in distress?
We're here to help.

Local Wellness Advisor (LWA)

Lauren Weber is a trained clinician who is here, embedded within the Faculty to orient and connect you with the appropriate resource both on and off campus for your unique situation. She provides wellness programming to equip you with tools and resources to take charge of your mental health as well as for the faculty on mental health awareness, prevention and early intervention.

Lauren is now offering one-on-one consultations at MESC to equip students with the tools and resources to take charge of their mental health and to ensure you are well supported.  You can book directly by going to the Student Wellness Hub and find out more.

Stay tuned for upcoming Wellness events, workshops and initiatives for the Fall 2019 term.

Feel free to contact Lauren at lauren.weber2 [at] or come by MESC (FDA room 22) and say hi!
