Motivational interviewing is a communication style that Wolverine Wellness has adopted for the way we do our work. It shows up in written materials, supervision, workshops, partnerships with others and it underlies the Wellness Coaching program. It’s a philosophy that allows us to meet students where they are and help move them forward in their educational and personal journeys. Five staff in Wolverine Wellness are uniquely qualified to train in this area, as they have been accepted into the international Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers (MINT).
Wolverine Wellness fosters personal & community well-being for U-M students, in college and beyond.
Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention
Alcohol and Other Drug Prevention work at Wolverine Wellness is student-centered and uses evidence-based strategic interventions, collaboration, innovation and the incorporation of the wellness dimensions to reduce harmful consequences of alcohol and other drug use.
The goal is to support students in achieving their personal and academic potential.
Condoms and other products for safer sex:
We have a variety of condoms, lubricant, and dental dams that are available free for students. Visit our table outside Wolverine Wellness on the ground floor of UHS. We thank you for sanitizing your hands and maintaining social distancing when picking up safer sex items.
UHS Pharmacy sells condoms and other safer sex products, as do area pharmacies. Products are also available for purchase online and can be shipped to your home.
Healthy relationships include acting in accordance with your values, knowing and respecting boundaries (both yours and your partners’), and consent.
Healthy romantic and sexual relationships can take many different forms. Some people like to date one person, while others prefer to date several people, or none at all. Relationships can include more than two people. Romantic relationships may or may not include sex. Any of these relationship styles can be healthy, as long as all involved feel like their needs and wants are being respected.
