Student Life » Resources


Why do we seek out resources? We seek out resources because the way that we are currently operating is not producing the results that we need to keep us well. When extra support is needed, it is sought out. All facets of society function this way. Seeking resources is considered a strength and a sign of wellness. Sometimes we end up burning out because we don’t seek out resources soon enough. In truth, it takes skill and insight to understand when support is needed. Here is a

growing list of community-based resources that you can access to support your wellness. Remember, the things we consider ourselves to be strong and well versed in today, weren’t always that way. It took time to develop those things into strengths. The same is with wellness. It takes time. Stay with the process.
