UW System Administrative Policy 625 Youth Protection and Compliance

UW System Administrative Policy 625 Youth Protection and Compliance went into effect in March 2023. The policy establishes minimum standards for protection of minors engaged in covered activities. UW-Stout has developed procedures to align and meet these needs. If your department engages with minors, please see the website below to find out if the activity is a covered activity. After reviewing the scope of the policy, you will be walked through the steps you must take if the activity is covered. Note that covered activities include both university sponsored activites and third party activities where a department may bring an outside group to campus. In the event of a third party coming to campus and working with youth, the department(s) working directly with the third party have obligations to ensure the third party follows UWSA 625 and UW-Stout policy.

Mental Health Tips - Depression

Depression is a mental health diagnosis that many people experience. Depression involves having a decreased interest in pleasurable activities, feeling fatigued, feelings of hopelessness, and other symptoms. Depressive symptoms can affect people in different ways and for different amounts of time. Sometimes people get into patterns or habits that may increase depressive symptoms. Here are some tips on how to change up that pattern and combat some of those symptoms.

  • Going outside—with spring here, we are getting more sunshine. Sometimes by spending time outdoors, we can influence our brain positively and feel better.
  • Gratitude journaling—focus on the positive things that are happening. It could be as simple as “I’m grateful I have a comfy pillow.”
  • Exercise—evidence shows that consistent exercise helps lift mood.
  • Get into a routine—this will help sleep and eating patterns which can be impacted by depression.
  • Talk to a trusted person—sharing your experience allows you to externally process your emotions, helping you understand you more.
