In February, relationships are on the forefront of many students’ minds. It’s the season when we celebrate our valuable connections and reflect on the challenging ones.
Healthy and respectful relationships with yourself and others can go a long way. When we feel supported, loved, and cared for, we can strive to be better versions of ourselves. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, the Wellness Peers will be exploring different aspects of healthy relationships throughout the month of February. Each week, check our blog for videos to learn more about the joys and challenges of relationships — the ones we have with ourselves and others.
This week’s video is about consent. Whether it’s between friends, colleagues, teammates, or partners, getting and giving consent in all relationships allows everyone to feel respected and heard. It shows that you care about the other person, and sets a strong foundation for happy, healthy relationships. Check out the video below to learn more about the importance of giving and getting consent — even if you’ve known the person for a while.
