6th Annual Mental Wealth Day Scheduled for Wednesday

Students visiting with vendors.Rogers State University’s Community Social Justice League and Psi Chi Chapter are hosting their 6th Annual Mental Wealth Day event on Wednesday, Oct. 28, in the basement of the Chapman Dining Hall, as well as in University Village B Clubhouse on the Claremore campus.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with the OBI Blood Drive running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mental Wealth Day is free and open to the public.

An award-winning program, Mental Wealth Day seeks to promote mental health and wellness in the community. Visitors and students will learn about community resources, careers and educational opportunities in the fields of mental health, social science and criminal justice. Attendees also will have the opportunity to participate in personal and professional development seminars.

RSU Counseling Services will provide mental health screening free of charge in University Village B. RSU Career Services will host a social science career/graduate school fair in conjunction with the event, giving job seekers the opportunity to learn about available internships, volunteer positions, and event job opportunities in the field.

There will also be a silent auction that will be held during the event closing at 3 p.m. Proceeds from the silent auction will go to support future programming and events sponsored by Social Justice League and Psi Chi, like the “Special Day of Care” where the residents of Safenet, the Claremore Abused Women and Children’s Shelter, are treated to free beauty services (for the ladies) and a carnival (for the kids).

This is the largest student-organized event at RSU, so please support our students by taking time to stop by and visit with our community partners, sit in on an informational seminar, or bid on a silent auction item.
