Next week, June 5-9th, will be our monthly Jeans Week for Domestic and Sexual Violence Awareness. You are invited to wear jeans for a minimum donation of $10. All money collected will be divided between the NWA Women’s Shelter and the NWA Center for Sexual Assault. Since December, we have raised over $1,800 – let’s keep up the good work. Please take donations to Danielle Schader, 2nd floor of the Student Center SC 225 I, or Jamie Schraeder in SC 225 E. If you are in a position that already allows you to wear jeans, you may still make a donation if you would like. Also, please use your discretion during Jeans Week when meeting with off-campus individuals or groups.

Mental health is a key part of your overall health. Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a mental health professional – it’s a checkup from your neck up. To take a screening, CLICK HERE or go to NWACC/Campus and Community Resources. Screenings do not provide a diagnosis of any medical condition. The information provided by the screenings do not substitute for a full evaluation by a health professional.
