Health and Wellness Examples

At MIT, student wellness is a priority, and we want students to take their health seriously. Students should eat well, sleep, exercise, have regular check-ups with a clinician, and address any health concerns that arise. On occasion, students will need to seek professional help for their mental or physical health. If a student discloses information to you about their physical or mental health, connecting them to services is crucial to their wellbeing and to their success at MIT.
