Emotional wellness is the basis of a happy, productive and well-balanced life. Stress, anxiety, grief, depression and relationship issues can all impact emotional wellness. The right knowledge is crucial to maintaining emotional wellness and managing life, school and work issues. A Healthier U provides comprehensive resources and information to help faculty and professional staff develop the skills needed to achieve overall emotional wellness and a healthy work/life balance.
