Get to know Available Resources  

Working on our wellbeing is a lifelong journey. There are going to be ups and downs throughout our lives. College can have multiple transitions and challenges that may impact our well-being. There will be times when we are not doing well, and that is ok. It’s in those times that we want to utilize the resources that are available to us to support our wellbeing. Luckily, at the University of Florida we have numerous resources available to support student well-being. 

We want to make sure you know about all the resources that are available to you. Below are some resources that you can utilize during your time at UF. They are categorized based on what main dimension of wellbeing they fall under. Feel free to check them out and if you still have questions contact GatorWell.

Campus Resources to Support the Dimensions of Wellbeing


Maintaining our health and well-being can be challenging when we have so much going on: i.e. schoolwork, relationships, research, extracurricular involvement, planning for the future, work, etc. It can be helpful to step back and take time to reflect on where we are with our well-being and what we need to be healthy and well. 

Sometimes the first step is self-reflection and increasing self-awareness around what you need support with. Shedding light on where you are struggling can be tough. It is important to be honest with yourself so that you can move forward and get to where you want to be.

Another reflection tool is to consider the 9 Dimensions of Wellbeing and how you are doing in the various dimensions. Once you have taken time to reflect, you can start to consider how you would like to move forward and what resources you have available to support you.


Reach out and make the connection

Now that you’ve learned about the various resources available to you and have reflected on what you need for your well-being, you can take the next step. This step can be as big or as small as you would like. Remember this is your journey and your well-being. When you are ready for the next step, there are a few things to consider that can support your progress. 

The first step can be the most difficult. Remember it is ok to not be ok and that there are resources and people that are eager to support you and what you are working on. Consider what will make reaching out more realistic and manageable for you. Think about the potential benefits of getting assistance.
