Also check out the Center for Wellness and Health Promotion, which has a website full of information on various health-related topics, including sexual health.

Harvard Drug and Alcohol Peer Advisors (DAPA) is a group of student advisors that serve both as health opinion leaders and resources to their peers.

Originally established as The Student Alliance in 1997, the Consent Advocates & Relationship Educators are translators, interpreters, and connectors who serve as liaisons between the Office of Sexual Assault Prevention and Response and their peers. Through strategic educational advocacy, outreach, and programming, CAREs work to create a campus culture free from the threat or experience of sexual violence for all people. They foster collaborative relationships with student leaders and administrative offices to create safer, trauma-informed spaces for survivors and allies, plan health communication campaigns and programs to promote gender equity and confront rape culture, and conduct peer-to-peer training surrounding consent and healthy relationships.
SMHL are student leaders who work collaboratively with the Wellness Proctors/Tutors, and other student groups to promote a supportive student community at Harvard. Liaisons educate, raise awareness, and engage in House and Freshman Yard community programs in order to help our community (students, residential and administration staff, faculty) better understand the issues of emotional wellbeing, early recognition of students in distress, treatment effectiveness, treatment options, and to promote emotional support in the community.
