Neurodiversity club interest survey

We are a small team of neurodiverse students and allies at UW-Stout interested in establishing a campus club that celebrates and supports neurodiversity.

We have created a survey to gauge student interest in this type of club and see what types of activities students are interested in. In general, we are planning to offer social spaces, learning events, and advocacy opportunities oriented toward neurodiversity topics. We are hoping to launch the club in spring 2023. ALL students are invited to join, including students who identify as neurodiverse, friends of neurodiverse people, and anyone interested in learning about neurodiversity,

Neurodiverse Club interest survey
 Survey will be open through Wednesday, November 19, 2022.

Mental Health Tips on Self-Care

Everyone struggles to find balance with school, work, sports, clubs, family…the list goes on. Here are some tips on taking action to preserve or improve your own mental health.

Ask yourself:

1. ÔÇ»How much sleep am I getting? – Everyone’s needs are different but try to average 6-8 hours each night.

2. What am I grateful for? – Gratitude reduces anxiety; aim to think of three positive things each day.

3. When is the last time I listened to music? – Singing along to your favorite tune releases endorphins in your brain, which improves your mood! BONUS: When you sing, you are more likely to take deeper breaths.

4. Who lights me up? – Surround yourself with positive people who encourage you to become a better version of you.

5. What is 1 thing I do for myself each day? – A delicious cup of coffee, reading a book of my choice, enjoying nature, yoga, journaling, visiting animals at a local shelter, creating, laughing with friends, working out…what is something that is rejuvenating for you that isn’t mandatory?

6. What are my hobbies? – If you don’t know what your hobbies are, think of what brought you joy as a child: coloring, swimming, sports, or playing outside. That’s where we start!

7. Identify barriers to your current self-care routine – What is getting in the way of ‘me time’? “I don’t deserve it”, “I have more important things to do”, “It’s not necessary, I’m fine”, “I don’t have time”…Challenge and reframe such negative thoughts… “I deserve it”, “This is important”, “I’m necessary”, “I have 5 minutes for myself.”
