Wellness Resources

Social Wellness

This involves having relationships with friends, family, and the community, and having an interest in and concern for the needs of others.

Reach Out and Connect with Someone

  • Talk to a friend or supporter—social support relieves stress and can even keep you healthy.
  • Hug a pet! Spending time with animals can be calming and make you feel less alone. Taking care of a pet can give you a sense of purpose.
  • Spend time around other people in your community.
