Sabrina Loven-Gulick joins Finlandia Fridays this week to share news of an upcoming on-campus initiative, Mental Health Awareness Week, happening Sunday, October 2, through Saturday, October 8.

Loven-Gulick, a personal counselor and academic coach for Trio Student Support Services (SSS) at Finlandia University, kicks things off by sharing insight into a few TRIO SSS topics, such as eligibility, participation, and the types of things she does for her role.

“When you hear personal counseling, it’s therapy. It’s me being here for the TRIO students and being able to walk them through that process,” Loven-Gulick said. “The academic coach is I’m here to assist with any kind of study tips, organization, things like that, to help make classes as easy as we can for the students.”

First-generation college students with a financial need or disability are eligible to apply. To participate, students must first qualify, fill out the TRIO Student Support Services Application and then make an appointment to meet with a TRIO SSS Professional Academic Coach.
Jumping into Mental Health Awareness Week, Loven-Gulick shared a few items that students and employees can participate in next week.

“Next week is all about bringing awareness for mental health, but it’s about taking a break as well. The idea that taking a brain break, taking time for self-care, and that’s what the activities we planned on campus are for.”
