Core Skill: Personal Well-Being

Personal Well-being involves finding deeper meaning, balance, and purpose in one’s life. It involves learning the necessary skills, knowing the proper resources, and applying wellness principles in order to live a fulfilling life.

Rackham Resources

In addition to services at their central location (Tappan Auxiliary Building, 609 Tappan Street), Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) has an embedded staff member dedicated to graduate students in the Rackham Building (Suite 3560, Room 3572).

Allowing myself to need, seek, and receive support was critical to finishing my degree. It’s ironic, because a lot of my community work is based on connecting people with resources they need, but when it came to my own wellness, I found that I had to recommit to self-tenderness, to allow myself to receive so that I could continue to offer.
