Leadership workshops for your Lumberjack

Hello Parent,
LEAP is excited to focus on leadership development with your Lumberjack. Together, we hope to share the importance of self-awareness, community, and building a leadership identity. As students like yours navigate college life, it is important that they take the time to look within and reflect on what they are learning and how it will impact their future. Our leadership workshop series will do just that. With topics such as communication, self-awareness tests, and building one’s 7 habits to be a more effective leader, this workshop series will help NAU students strengthen their resumes while enhancing their own leadership identity.

Students helping students: Peer mental health support

The Mental Health Support Squad (MHSS) is a student organization comprised of NAU students who are passionate about mental health education, outreach, and advocacy. Squad members are trained and supervised by the staff of Counseling Services and serve as a mental health resource for peers. Through drop-in hours, a general mental health support group, and various mental health-focused events, the squad works to bring mental health wellness to NAU students. Our support squad encourages NAU students from all campuses to access our services.
The Mental Health Support Squad is excited to announce a new service for all NAU students: peer mental health mentorship is now available! Interested students can submit a mentor request on our website and they will be matched with a squad member who will provide mental health connection, guidance, and referrals as necessary. Each mentor-mentee pair will work together to determine the scope, depth, and frequency of their relationship and are invited to get creative in how they choose to connect.
For more information about our new mentorship program or any of our other services, please visit our website: or have your student email us. We can also be found on Instagram.
We are looking forward to hearing from and supporting your student soon!
