NCWU Students Take Action on Mental Health
Four international students at North Carolina Wesleyan University have teamed up to develop a course and textbook that promotes mental well-being among their peers. The Wesleyan Mindset - Inner Journey Journal is the brainchild of former student-athletes Gregor Baum (Germany) and Harjot "Hardy" Singh (New Zealand), with help from sisters Candela Conde Latini and Delfina Conde Latini (Argentina) on design and layout. Both Gregor and Harjot independently took the initiative to create this resource, not as a required class project, completing it in a few short months during the fall 2022 semester. Read more.
