Maintaining Health and Wellness is a 30-minute program that focuses on stress, stress management, and self-care. Peer educators will facilitate a brief meditation activity, followed by a discussion around the culture of stress. The presentation will then offer strategies to maintain a healthy mindset and where to go on campus for confidential resources.

The Red Watch Band is a program that was created at Stony Brook University and was brought Northeastern University. The mission of the Red Watch Band is to provide students of the community with the knowledge, awareness, and skills to prevent toxic drinking deaths and to promote a student culture of kindness, responsibility, compassion and respect.

The Red Watch Band program is a student-led initiative aimed at encouraging students to identify dangerous levels of intoxication, and to call for help if their friends have had too much to drink.

Events occur one to two times per semester, in partnership with NU EMS and RWB peer educators. Email open@northeastern.edu to find out dates and times of upcoming RWB events.

Peer educators can come into meetings to discuss campus resources related to health and wellness and how to access these resources. They are trained to answer questions about where to go on campus.

Peer educators can facilitate activities on alcohol education, sexual health, consent and healthy relationships. They can also bring information and handouts on Northeastern resources to tabling events and programs. Please email open@northeastern.edu for more information.
