Mental Well-being

​Mental well-being is caring for ourselves holistically. It encompasses our mental, physical, spiritual, emotional, social, financial, and environmental health. To feel happy, healthy, socially connected and purposeful, we need to pay attention to all of the above facets of our well-being.

Below you will find links to resources about the facets of well-being as well as different programs and services at DePaul to assist you in your journey of mental well-being.
