Counseling and Human Services Club builds relationships within community 

     The Counseling and Human Services Club is focused on building relationships and ties within the community and school based on positive mental health habits.  

     Dani Dickey, a senior and human services and counseling major with an emphasis on social and emotional wellness, is president of the club and has been a member for two years.  

     “Our goals are volunteering in the community, promoting positive mental health habits, fostering relationships and connecting students and community together around human services and counseling,” wrote Dickey via email.  

     The club is recruiting leadership members and volunteers. Members meet once a quarter in addition to the leadership meetings the club holds each month. “We encourage those who are thinking of joining the leadership team to join in on those meetings. We do not have any official reoccurring times for these,” Dickey said.  

     “We have a professor panel coming up where students can learn more about the field and experiences that our professors have had,” Dickey said. “Many of them work both in the field and as professors.”  

     The club is planning an outdoor spring cleanup in April. They will hold a live yoga session on their Instagram page on March 2 at 6 p.m. and a pizza party on March 11 from 6 – 8 p.m. at Old Chicago. 

     Anyone interested in joining the Counseling and Human Services Club can contact them through Mountain Lion Connect or by emailing Dickey at [email protected]
