One thing at a time.
March 2020 was The Herd's first-ever Mental Health Month. Our goal is to raise awareness for mental health initiatives on campus and money for The Herd Peer Wellness Coach Fund, but you can be the one to make a difference.
Currently, peer wellness coaches only help first-year students living in residence halls. They do so with one-on-one meetings to prioritize responsibilities, goal set, identify strengths and more. In 2019–2020, seven peer wellness coaches served over 8,000 residents on campus. The Herd Peer Wellness Coach Fund seeks to provide funding to help the PWC program hire coaches to support all students, including those that have transferred to CU and those that live off campus.

It costs approximately $9,000 per academic year to fund one peer wellness coach. Make an impact at CU Boulder by donating online or visiting us at one of our tabling events throughout the month of March. When you donate, you will receive a #HerdMentalHealthMonth t-shirt.
