What is myWellness?
The NAIT Students’ Association is pleased to provide a new mental health and wellness resource focused on students. 1 in 5 students suffer from symptoms relating to mental illness. We want to help. This service highlights resources and information on-campus, in the community, and online. It gives you access to FeelingBetterNow®, a tool designed for students to help identify if they are at diagnostic risk for mental illness and provides access to support.
The College of Family Physicians of Canada has reviewed and approved FeelingBetterNow® as a practice management tool available to assist family physicians in patient care. Regardless of your academic status (full time, part time, opted out etc.) this resource is available to all NAIT students.
myWellness Stress Test Card
Come pick up your myWellness stress test card at the NAITSA office (e131). When you are stressed, your body restricts blood flow to your extremities, causing your hands and fingers to become cold. This card provides a simple measurement that you can use to practice hand warming and reduce stress.
