The Center for Student Mental Health and Well-being developed the Be Well Initiative to support holistic well-being through 4 aspects of a healthy lifestyle: connect well, recharge well, live well, and play well.
Be Well is designed to help students reflect on and support their personal well-being. Everyone's idyllic well-being is unique and different, so Be Well is designed to be a hands-on or as hands-off approach.

Be Well Plan
Making a plan is an essential part of supporting your well-being. We encourage students to make a Be Well plan that considers each of the four facets, and how they can maintain those strategies into the future. We encourage students to take some time to develop and foster a Be Well Plan on their own. We know it can be a challenge to come up with ideas, so we have included some potential strategies that could be incorporated.
