The School of Medicine Mental Health and Wellness Program promotes mental health and wellness at the School of Medicine. The UNC School of Medicine Student Wellness Taskforce is composed of students in all classes who aim to promote mental health and wellness among their peers. They host events to solicit student feedback, host Week of Wellness events, and advocate for changes to policies to improve wellness. Their mission is to foster and support a culture of wellness for students throughout their medical education across the following domains: academic, professional, mental, physical, and social by opening channels of communication, cultivating a culture of safety and acceptance, providing tools, and building connections within and across the students, community, and administration.
