AWARE – Student Ambassadors

AWARE: Awareness Wellness Ambassadors Reaching Everyone

Our UF CWC ambassadors provide wellness and mental health awareness outreach initiatives for the UF community and surrounding Gainesville area, as well as, reduce the stigma towards seeking mental health resources and services.

AWARE Cares

UF CWC's AWARE Ambassadors participate in numerous initiatives and outreach efforts to help spread information about mental health as well as provide support to students and refer them to the CWC's numerous services.

  • My CWC is a space to learn about services and resources available to support your mental health. Explore My CWC.

  • It can be challenging being away from school, friends, and activities but there is a simple thing you can do to get support. Learn more about Letters of Care.

  • Aware Live is a series where your CWC Aware Ambassadors get on Instagram Live to discuss relevant and timely topics related to mental health. Learn more about AWARE Live.

  • Gator-2-Gator @ CWC is a new support initiative, where you can get connected with one of our trained student ambassadors to talk. Learn more about Gator-2-Gator.
