Sanvello at Seattle U

Sanvello Corporate Logo

The Sanvello app is designed to support mental wellness through a variety of activities and tool, including meditation, mindfulness exercises, journaling, and mood boards. Since no two people are the same, students can select and use whichever tools are most helpful for them in their personal wellness journey. Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) has paid for a Sanvello Premium account for all SeattleU students. To access Sanvello Premium, students should sign-up using their SU email address (@seattleu.edu). Download on the Apple App Store. Get it on Google Play.

Refresh Sleep Support

The Refresh Sleep Support logo is a purple sheep sleeping on a crescent moon on a gray background.

Refresh is an 8-week emailed-delivered program which uses cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to improve sleep quality. Refresh is a clinically proven program and has been used to many universities throughout the United States. Nearly two-thirds of SeattleU students do not get enough sleep. Disruptions like COVID-19 have an impact on sleep quality. Lack of sleep has been demonstrated to have a similar negative effect on academic performance as regular binge drinking. You don’t need to have a “sleep problem” in order to try Refresh. There are multiple versions, and we use validated sleep scales to determine which version is right for you. This quarter, sign-ups for Refresh are on-going with a new cohort starting every one to two weeks. Sign-up for Refresh using this link.

Discord Logo

Join our Discord Server! Discord is a way to communicate over voice, video, and text. Wellness and Health Promotion has setup a Discord Server to act as a virtual office and lounge. Staff will be available at “The Front Desk” audio channel during normal business hours. “The Kettle” audio channel is a lounge for students to hang out and enjoy. You can even stream what you’re doing and chat with others about it. Our hope is that this truly becomes a lounge for all students. Sign-up for Discord; then, use this link to sign into our server.
