New columnist to bring wellness, mental health coverage to Delval Full360

 My name Is Dominique Malgeri, and I am a student here at Delaware Valley University who will be writing a wellness column for our university’s student media, The Full360. 

As a new columnist, I thought I would write about something near and dear to my heart. 

Mental health and wellness are extremely important to me and are something that is a part of my everyday life. As someone who has struggled with anxiety, it has been a priority to keep my mental health in a positive place. Many things have helped my mental wellbeing, but especially the counseling services here at Del Val. 

At first, I was a little hesitant on sharing personal things with someone I didn’t know, but after my first session with one of the counselors, I realized that all they want is to help and to allow students to cope with serious or mundane everyday struggles. It can be extremely scary to open up, but when you do, you realize that it’s an act of self-love and that you will never regret taking care of you. 

For anyone interested, the counseling services are located in Elson Hall where the wellness center is also located. To set up an appointment with one of the counselors make sure to email 

The staff is there to help and to not add any financial burdens as well. I am also the vice president of the Psychology Club here at Del Val. Our club’s main focus is to provide a safe space for students and to learn about the importance of mental health. 

We have plenty of activities this semester that are designed to be an outlet for us college students. For example, we have a trip this semester to the rage room in West Chester. The rage room and other activities we have planned are here to be a tool for anyone who needs it. 

The club encourage any student of any major to attend the meetings, but would also like to voice that this club is a great opportunity for any psychology majors, like me, here at Del Val. 

We want to make a difference and take away the stigma of mental health, and we would love for you to come along this ride with us. You can keep up with us on Instagram @psychclub_at_dvu. Feel free to DM us with any questions.

 I’m thrilled to be a part of DelVal’s student media publication, The Full360 blog, and I hope you are all taking the steps to fill up your own cups.
