The PCC has an Outreach Coordinator who works with student and campus leaders to provide education about stress management. Her focus is on enhancement of coping skills and decreasing risk factors for mental health problems. She provides workshops on campus focused on stress management and has worked with a team of students to develop a student ambassador program called LEAPS (Liasons Educated & Advocating for Psychological Support). Our goal is to provide resources that facilitate stress management in order to minimize or prevent mental health problems. A specific area of education is suicide risk and prevention; our staff provides workshops for students and faculty at the undergraduate and graduate level.
