APSU offers free wellness class for students with depression

After spring break, APSU will provide a free wellness class to students.

The class will be held from March 14 through April 21 and will meet Monday-Thursday from 11:30-noon in the cycling room of the Foy Center.

Students who attend at least two sessions a week for the first three weeks will get a free T-shirt. Students do not have to attend every session and can come and go as they please.

“It’s a way for students to help their body out and help their mind out,” said Alex Robles, junior health and human performance major.

The purpose of the class is to reach out to students with depression, according to Robles. According to WebMD, exercising is one of the hardest things to do with depression but can be one of the best ways to help.

Students suffering from depression could also meet people going through the same thing by taking the class.

Not only could the class benefit a person’s physical health, it could also put students in a better state of mind by releasing endorphins.

However, this class is not only for students who might be suffering from depression. Any student is welcome to join and attend the class.

For more information, students can visit booths set up on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the weeks before and after spring break. They will be open from 2-3 p.m. in the Foy and 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the Morgan University Center.
