    • Owl About Stress – This program empowers students to reframe how they think about stress.
    • Owls Stop Stigma – This program explores origins of mental health stigma, how students can identify and support friends who may be struggling, and how each individual can be an agent of change in reducing stigma.
    • Take Care, Take Action (formerly "Give A Hoot") – This program will provide students with information about the bystander effect, the difference between emergent and non-emergent situations, and strategies for taking action.
