Health and Wellness Office
Students often juggle multiple demands and we recognize that it can be difficult to find balance. For any changes you want to make to your health and wellness, the Health and Wellness Office at the University of Manitoba would like to support you in your journey.
We are here to help you take control of your own health and make your own decisions. We are a judgment-free space and we avoid labels whenever possible.
The Health and Wellness Office will continue to provide support to students but will do so only via telephone and email. Please contact the Health and Wellness Educator 204-295-9032 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Health and Wellness Educator will continue to be available via telephone and email during regular working hours of 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday.

Bringing in the Bystander
(UPDATE: Nov. 9, 2020) We are hiring student facilitators for the Bringing in the Bystander Program. Student facilitators will host online workshops to engage peers in the topic of sexual violence prevention and response. Information and contact can be found in the job description; please fill out the application form if you're interested.
Bringing in the Bystander™ is an effective in-person, interactive prevention workshop that is based on the concept that all community members have a role to play in preventing sexual violence. Student participants learn the importance of speaking out against social norms that support sexual violence, to become aware of and identify potential risks in various situations, to develop empathy and support for survivors, and explore how to safety interrupt or intervene in situations that can lead to sexual violence.
