Tap Room is a relaxation program facilitated by Peer Wellness Educators or Student Health and Wellness Ambassadors.
The Tap Room is a mobile, outreach-based environmental strategy where we set up various evidence based relaxation and stress reduction strategies in your space (office space, conference room, waiting area, etc.) for students, staff, or faculty to practice. Folks can stop by for as much time as they want to learn about and engage in various relaxation strategies. All activities have directions for self-directed engagement and learning. Student volunteers or employees managing the space will be available for questions and as people leave they will provide them with resources for other mental health services on campus. Note – for staff/faculty only programs, student volunteers or employees will help set up and take down the Tap Room, but may not be able to stay for the full program based on availability and capacity.
To request to bring Tap Room to your space, fill out the program request form and select “Tap Room”.

- Guided Meditation
