SIU Wellness and Health Promotion Services
Forward Together

Did you know that stress, sleep and anxiety are the top three reported barriers to academic success according to SIU students? Do you want to support SIU students’ health and wellbeing? Then donating to Wellness and Health Promotion Services may be for you!  

Wellness and Health Promotion Services focuses on providing education to students on health behaviors and topics such as sleep, stress management, substance use, mental health, violence prevention, nutrition, sexual health and others. We teach students skills that help them with the day-to-day choices they face regarding health and wellness behaviors. We also provide volunteer, internship, and graduate assistantship opportunities each year.
