A part of UCLA's Student Welfare Commission
The SHA program has been a part of the University of California, Los Angeles experience since 1974 and is one of many organizations on campus that contributes to the increased quality, safety, and comfort of campus life. The SHA program works in conjunction with the Student Welfare Commission (SWC), the Arthur Ashe Student Health, and Wellness Center and the Bruin Resource Center (BRC) to encourage and help students to develop healthy lifestyles and educate students on well-being.
The Student Health Advocates offer free, friendly, and convenient services including health information, health-related programming on campus and in the residential halls, and community health outreach programs. SHAs are trained to educate other students about various health issues including relationships and communication, stress management, body image and alcohol harm reduction. SHAs coordinate campus, all-hill, all-hall, and floor programs throughout the year to help UCLA students achieve a heightened awareness of their own health needs and to assume greater responsibility for their own mental and physical health.
