New Resource on Campus: Health and Wellness Resource Guide

The online Health and Wellness Resource Guide is a search tool designed to help navigate the vast number of support services available to our student community. It can often be challenging to know where to turn for support but by utilizing the search engine students can quickly narrow down resources to best fit their need and staff and faculty can quickly identify support resources for a student in need. You can browse the many health and wellness related resources listed alphabetically or you can use the search features by selecting a specific criteria within the 10 Dimensions of Wellness; audience type; campus location; or by specific categories such as Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion or Emergency Response. This tool is for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students and lists the many resources available on all campuses. Check out the tool today by visiting: go.osu.edu/wellnessguide
