Resources for Regional Campuses

Well-being Wheel

Wellness is not merely the absence of illness or distress- it is a lifelong process of making decisions to live a more balanced and meaningful life. As students work towards their personal wellness, SOS encourages using the Well-being Wheel. The Well-being Wheel is a tool that illustrates a wellness model with eight dimensions that can help students survey what impacts their overall wellness. All of these dimensions are interconnected and important to a well-rounded and balanced life.

Below you will find community resources categorizes using the Well-being Wheel dimensions.
