Beatriz Ramirez

I’m a second year student and my major is Social Work. What called me to be a Wellness Ambassador was to learn more about mental health so I could support students. I feel there isn’t enough talk about mental health and how to take care of our well being and a Wellness Ambassador advocates for that. 

Self-Care Tip 
My self-care tip is to walk outside or go skateboarding around my neighborhood.

My name is Jasleen Kaur and I am a third year student majoring in Biology with Allied Health. I’m planning on becoming a nurse in the future. As a Wellness Ambassador, I look forwards to hosting mental health related events on campus to foster a sense of community within the students and have fun along the way. I hope to reduce the stigma around mental health by promoting the CARES counseling services offered on campus. 

My self care tip is to take small breaks when ever I feel stressed. I recommend taking a step back from whatever may be stressing you out by taking a walk outside or listening to music.

Shanaya Prasad

My name is Shanaya Prasad. This is my second year at Chabot, majoring in Psychology. I was drawn to becoming a Wellness Ambassador as spreading awareness about mental health and giving back to others in the community has always been important to me. I have always had a passion for helping others, and becoming a Wellness Ambassador has been a rewarding experience as we raise awareness among students about how important it is to take care of our well-being and overall mental health. 

Self-care tip: Take time out of your day to prioritize your well-being. We have many things going on, and we sometimes forget to care for ourselves. Taking one hour out of your day for self-care can be crucial for our health. You can consider reading, journaling, meditating, exercising, etc.

Clayton Ensel 

My name is Clayton Ensel. I’m starting my fifth year at Chabot College and I am pursuing something that I’ve always been passionate about, which is Mental Health and Psychology. I love listening to music, playing guitar, singing, cooking, exercising, and spending time with others. What called me to be a Wellness Ambassador is my passion for Mental Health Awareness and breaking down the stigma around mental health counseling. I feel that everyone should have easy access to personal counseling if they need it. Especially when the student health fee covers Mental Health services offered by Chabot CARES Mental Health. I am interested in Human Services because I love working with others. I also love that through working as a Wellness Ambassador, I can potentially change the course of someone’s life for the better. 

Self-Care Tip 
By using a Daily Mood Log I can gain a new perspective on any of my thoughts that may be somewhat distorted.  This can really support me to change the way I might be feeling about an upsetting event.

I am Janelle Mae Silvania and I go by she/they pronouns. I am a third-year Chabot student and majoring in Public Health. I am a Filipinx woman and a first-generation college student. After receiving CARES mental health services at Chabot College, my experience there led me to share the same warmth that I received with other students. As a Wellness Ambassador, I hope to serve the voices that have yet to be heard and I live by the saying “When I heal, the ancestors heal that have come before me”.

Self-Care Tip

My self-care tip is to get some sunshine whenever you can and journal your feelings out.
