Wellness and Prevention Education
The mission of Wellness and Prevention Education is to provide various services and programming opportunities that encourage healthy decision-making among students. Wellness and Prevention education coordinates health-related programs that comply with federal and state mandates such as the Drug Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 and provides personal counseling coordinated through the Student Counseling Center. Programming and information through this office covers areas such as alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse, sexual assault and partner violence, sexual responsibility, student health insurance information, and other health-related topics.
Wellness and Prevention Education works with various specially trained student groups who are interested in impacting other students to encourage a change in behavior or improvement in knowledge about various student issues. Currently, Crossfire, a University Mothers' Against Drunk Driving affiliate and Campus Assault Response Effort (CARE) student organizations are advised by Wellness and Prevention Education Services. These organizations are open to any currently enrolled student at The University of Texas at Tyler.
