Emotional Wellness

Emotional wellness involves understand ourselves and adequately facing the challenges life brings. Emotional wellness encompasses optimism, self-esteem, self-acceptance and the ability to experience and cope with feelings independently and interpersonally.

At Student Wellness, we believe that each individual can find unique and healthy ways of coping with stressors and that there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. Most importantly, we strongly believe in de-stigmatizing mental health issues!

Enhance your emotional wellness by taking advantage of resources offered around campus.

  • Screening: A screening test is one of the quickest and easiest ways to determine if you are experiencing symptoms of a mental health condition.
  • Getting Help: There are a wide range of treatments and supports for children, families and adults.
    Unfortunately, they can be hard to find or pay for. We're here to help.
  • Sticking to Your Plan: Treating your mental health or substance use condition is about more than therapy and medication. You can get help with everything from housing to relationships, too.
  • Promote Well-being in Your Life: Regardless of whether you have a mental health or substance use condition, you can live your life well.
