Wellness is a proactive and positive approach to living that increases resiliency to stress by promoting life balance and contentment.  True psychological wellbeing is an ongoing, ever changing process that is unique for each individual. Our wellness philosophy at CAPS affirms the multifaceted needs of the "whole student", including the mental, social, spiritual and other aspects of self. We believe a holistic approach to understanding student experience is critical to providing optimal emotional wellness services at CAPS.
