Wellness at ASU
Welcome to the student Wellness Center! It is our mission to create an environment that promotes healthy lifestyles and academic success. We offer services promoting health awareness and active lifestyles while taking a holistic approach to wellness, encompassing six dimensions:
In order to promote these six dimensions of wellness, the Wellness Center offers educational programs on topics such as nutrition, sexual health, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, stress, and sleep. The Wellness Center hosts events designed to get students involved and educate them about how to take care of themselves. We also offer a variety of individual and group services for students to help them maintain wellness throughout their college careers. Individual therapy, nutrition assessment and a resource library are just some of the many services offered to students.
