STUDENT MENTAL HEALTH SOCIETY

The Student Mental Health Society provides a space for students to discuss mental health issues, as well as end the stigma about mental health in the law school setting. Through programming and awareness campaigns, the organization will work to promote the mental health resources offered by Villanova University. To address the expressed need for mental health support, this organization will act as a liaison between students and the administration, aiming to receive and voice concerns they may have. This group will focus solely on mental health and wellness programming.

     

MENTAL HEALTH & LAW STUDENT WELL-BEING

Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law has announced a new initiative, the Deans’ Mental Health and Law Student Well-being Advisory Council. The Advisory Council’s goal is to create open dialogue between law students and the administration about mental health and well-being concerns, promote resources both within the law school and the legal profession, and to destigmatize these issues among peers.
