Community Trainings & Consultation
Our outreach philosophy is based on a community health model of care that advocates for mental health and well-being resources to be equitably accessible to all members of a community. Directly serving Stanford communities through outreach is an integral part of our mission, and the reason we dedicate our resources to supporting communities' well-being.
We both recognize and embrace the diverse histories, needs, and aspirations of our student communities. We are strongly dedicated to social justice and supporting the needs of all students, especially students from underrepresented and marginalized communities who may feel and be othered by “traditional”, western, and individual-centric healing spaces such as counseling and clinical services. We serve our communities in varied ways, empowering them to build sustainable community well-being and capacities.
Trainings, workshops, presentations
We work with you—students, or faculty and staff—to customize well-being trainings to your needs. We can facilitate a wide variety of topics, including helping a student/friend who is struggling, intuitive eating, moving through grief and loss, avoiding burnout, self-compassion, and navigating mental health and well-being resources at Stanford.

The Red Folder contains processes and mini-scripts for having hard conversations, campus mental health resources, and context for our current mental health and well-being climate.
Flourishing in Community (FLiC)
Are you part of a community, such as a school, residence, lab, or identity-based group, who could use some support in fostering a healthier culture? Perhaps your community has suffered significant losses, or is impacted by recent national or international events, or is struggling with Stanford work culture or burnout. Often creating a culture of well-being involves more than a single workshop. If you are ready to make sustainable change in your community, we can help.

Mental Health and Well-Being Liaisons
Often it’s easier to reach out for help when you can connect with a familiar face. Our mental health and well-being liaisons serve as the go-to people for specific residences, community centers and schools. To request a liaison for your student or staff community email firstname.lastname@example.org.
