Health Promotion and Wellness


Health Promotion & Wellness (HPW) provides holistic education, support and resources for individuals to create and sustain long-term, healthy behaviors.

Survivor Support Advocates

The Survivor Support Advocates within HPW provide confidential and holistic support to survivors of sexual violence, relationship violence and stalking. The Advocates provide emotional care; information about counseling, medical resources, reporting processes, academic accommodations and safety planning; and referrals and help with navigating appropriate on- and off-campus resources.

Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention

Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention at DePaul University stems from a harm-reduction approach, which encourages healthy choices and responsible decision-making regarding the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. Students are also asked to consider their own safety and the safety of the community in relation to alcohol and substance use. The office offers various programs and presentations throughout the year, while also providing support to those in recovery or experiencing any issues related to substance misuse.

Health Education

Health Education includes providing resources, events, trainings, workshops and presentations on various health related topics. These topics include: sexual health, sexual violence, relationship violence, stalking, healthy relationships, alcohol and drug abuse prevention, mental health, stress, nutrition, meal planning, physical activity and more.
