What is National Wellness Week?

 

As part of National Recovery Month, SAMHSA is launching the fourth annual National Wellness Week from September 15-21, 2014 to promote the many ways that social inclusion, trauma-informed care, and the Eight Dimensions of Wellness can improve quality of life and increase life expectancy for people diagnosed with mental health issues.

 

During National Wellness Week, we aim to inspire individuals to improve one's

physical health behavior, while exploring their talents, skills, interests, social

connections, and environment to incorporate other dimensions of wellness. We will mobilize peer-run, faith-based and other community organizations, as well as mental health, substance addiction and physical healthcare providers to host events or promote messages encouraging the Eight Dimensions of Wellness (Emotional, Financial, Social, Spiritual, Occupational, Physical, Intellectual, and Environmental).
