Dental school is stressful. At times, it can feel overwhelming, but it is so important to reach out to friends, classmates, or family members when you’re going through a tough time. Resources like the UAB Student Counseling Services is available to all students and offers a safe place to discuss and resolve issues interfering with personal or professional goals.
Please join the ASDA Wellness Committee TOMORROW, May 24th in welcoming April Coleman from Student Counseling Services. April will be discussing how to maintain good mental health throughout our dental school careers. The Mental Health Lunch and Learn will take place in room 501 at 12pm! Pub Subs and fruit will be served. We hope to see you all there! Be sure to check out the May Month In Review for a full recap of this event if you cannot attend.
Good health is an essential aspect of overall wellbeing. ASDA’s Wellness Initiative recognizes five key dimensions for wellness: emotional, physical, intellectual, occupational, and environmental. This initiative encourages you to make well-being a priority.
