Mindfulness & Mothers Room in CC243

The Inver Hills Counseling Center has established a Mindfulness & Mothers Room in CC 243 (see CollegeCenter2ndFloor map)

This quiet space can be used for the following purposes:

  • Mindfulness practice & meditation

In times of stress, we are encouraged to take a moment to pause and find some peace and calm. Mindfulness is known to help combat stress and improve one’s quality of life.  Our hope is that this quiet space will allow students and employees to experience a place of peace and sanctuary while learning and working.

  • Nursing mothers

To provide space and to support nursing mothers returning to work or school, this is a private space where nursing mothers are welcome to express milk or nurse during their time on campus.  The room is equipped with a comfortable chair, a small table, soft lighting, a radio/CD player, hand sanitizer, paper towels and an electrical outlet.  Sinks are available in the rest room down the hall.

 

This space is available on a first come, first served basis and is available when the College Center building is open.  Additional space for nursing mothers is available in the Health Service, 1st floor of the College Center.

RUOK Campaign, sponsored by Counseling Department

The week of September 10th is National Suicide Prevention Week.  The Counseling Department is sponsoring R U OK day on Thursday, September 13th, and all week we are encouraging all members of the IHCC community to check in with the people around them.  We all need conversations, and that’s why we all need to ask people around us “are you ok?”.  If you or someone you care about needs a bit of extra help we want you to know that the Inver Hills Counselors are trained to help with crisis and non-crisis mental health concerns. It’s 3 little words we can all ask.  And if we all did, we could change the world.  Who will you ask?
