WSU Health Sciences Student Affairs provides many opportunities related to student health along the eight dimensions of wellness: Emotional, Spiritual, Intellectual, Physical, Environmental, Financial, Occupational and Social. Student Affairs encourages you to be familiar with the services offered to students to help you refer them for assistance. Over the next few weeks, Student Affairs will share information about how it helps students achieve optimal wellness.
This announcement focuses on student physical and emotional wellness. Students are experiencing higher levels of stress and anxiety than in the past and both of these wellness areas can help.
