Pack Chats Podcast

By NevadaCARES
Candid conversations with students at THE University of Nevada. Join us as we talk about subjects that college students deal with but rarely get talked about. We want this podcast to be a way for people to share their personal journeys with other students. Every student has a story. Maybe if we share our stories and listen to others, we will know we aren't alone. Thank you for all your support! We cannot express enough gratitude to have you all here with us on this journey.

Let's Talk About Sex, Baby!
Hey, Y'all! Join us as we embark on a conversation about expectations surrounding sex or, as we like to call it, Sex-pectations! In this episode, we share our experiences and cover topics from sex-ed to what we wish we would have known. Remember that sex is a completely PERSONAL choice, so only do what YOU feel okay with. Ongoing, enthusiastic consent is a must, and it's a good way to make sure both parties are respecting the boundaries put in place.  Don't forget to give us a follow for updates @nvcares on Twitter and Instagram!

Broken Is Beautiful.
Happy Mental Health Awareness Month! This episode we have two new voices joining us, Sydney and Kaylee, to talk more about mental health and their personal journeys with it as well. Remember to show yourself some love and to take care of yourself because there is only one you. Mental health is an ongoing journey that most people will encounter in this lifetime, so it is important that we bring awareness and support those who may need someone to lean on from time to time. It is also important to remember while checking in with other people to check in with yourself too
