Academically motivated and goal-oriented, Chatham Hall girls are “on-the-move.” In order for them to thrive, we know it is critically important to help them find balance, manage their stress, and take care of themselves. Learning to find a sanctuary and solace in our complex, fast-paced, and hyper-connected world is so important. Our wellness program gives them permission and teaches them how to do this.

Designing Our Program

In collaboration with the Dean of Students, Director of Mental Health and Wellness, Chaplain, dorm faculty, and professional resources, we offer a series of developmentally appropriate workshops that help our students to find ways to relieve stress, be mindful, and recharge. We call this our “GIRLS“ program, and it provides purposeful opportunities for personal growth. Each workshop is designed to provide the students with resources for self-awareness, self-care, self-advocacy, and stress management.

Past Workshops Include:
  • Yoga, massage, relaxation
  • Guided Prayer/Meditation
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Body Image and Media Literacy
  • Women’s Health
  • Nutrition
  • Drug and Alcohol Education
  • Self Defense
