Wellness Mission

Wellness Mission

To promote health and wellness across the SCCMHA system by encouraging individuals to come together to build a community that will provide a foundation for effective mental and physical development.

What is Wellness?

Wellness is not the absence of disease, illness or stress, but the presence of purpose in life, active involvement in satisfying work and play, joyful relationships, a healthy body and living environment, and happiness.

Wellness means overall well-being. It incorporates the mental, emotional, physical, occupational, intellectual, environmental, social, financial and spiritual aspects of a person’s life. Each aspect of wellness can affect overall quality of life, so it is important to consider all aspects of health. (Source: SAMHSA)
