  • Healthy relationships
  • Alcohol and substance use
  • Stress management
  • Mental and emotional wellness
  • Bystander intervention

HEAT can also help connect students to health and wellness resources on campus and in the community. Find us in Lincoln Park Student Center Suite 302 or follow us on Instagram and Twitter @HealthyDePaul.

Join HPW by becoming a Health Ambassador

Our Health Ambassadors are an important part of our office. They help us share the message of our Take Care DePaul culture: Take Care of Yourself, Take Care of Each Other and Take Care DePaul. They are social media enthusiasts and students that care deeply about creating a culture of health and wellness and empowering their peers to actively care for their holistic selves on a daily basis. Applications to be a Health Ambassador with HPW are accepted on a rolling basis. You may submit your application here, during anytime of the year. Once you submit your application, please email hpw@depaul.edu to let us know that you have submitted your application so we can respond ASAP.
