Wellness and Health Promotion
The Wellness and Health Promotion program provides a variety of health-related workshops, trainings, classroom presentations, and face-to-face sessions to students in every school. Topics include fitness, smoking cessation, nutrition, LGBTQI wellness, spiritual health, gender-specific health topics, communication skills, relationships, sex positivity and sexual assault prevention, drugs and alcohol, harm reduction, stress, and time management. All programs and services are structured to encourage and empower The New School's community to work towards its optimal health and well-being in a non-judgmental and supportive environment. We recognize that health a social justice are inextricably linked, and support studetnt work that promotes health in our varying communities.
During the academic year we hold weekly stress reduction programs, free for all New School students. There's no need to RSVP—just drop in! See a list of programs here.
