Students participated in yoga classes on Holmes Field and took a break from the books to attend paint night in the tent on Jarvis Field. A faculty panel on student wellbeing, a workshop on mindfulness and managing stress, and an information session on counseling and mental health services available at Harvard University were also part of the kick-off programming.

Throughout the year, The Well will continue to serve as a source of support, a hub for dialogue, and a space for sharing needs and accessing resources to help keep mental health and wellbeing a priority in law school and beyond.
