Emotional Wellbeing allows us to recognize, understand, experience and express a full range of emotions. Our emotions act as alarms to tell our body when we are doing well and when something needs to be fixed. Emotional wellbeing describes when we are able to channel our emotions into healthy behaviors that satisfy our personal and social goals.

Our emotions play a large role in how we handle stress, relate to others and influence our ability to accomplish our goals. Emotional wellbeing is closely related to the Spiritual and Social dimensions. Understanding and appreciating our strengths and limitations, developing appropriate levels of autonomy, effectively managing anger, stress, and conflict, and communicating effectively and meaningfully with others all contribute to a positive state of emotional wellbeing.

Emotional Wellbeing Highlights
  • Our Stress Management workshops give an introduction as to where your stress may come from and tips about how to manage in the moment and over time.

  • Mental Health First Aid is a certification course much like typical first aid. This course teaches participants to recognizes the signs and symptoms of mental illness, and how to help those experiencing a mental health crisis

  • The Reflections Body Image Academy is a program for women to discuss how body image is related to our emotional wellbeing and how we can create supportive networks for developing a healthy body image.
