"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”  -World Health Organization

Welcome to the official website for the Center for Health Promotion and Student Well-Being! Notre Dame students can use this site to access information about wellness resources and health-related events on campus. At Notre Dame, we focus on seven aspects of wellness: emotional, intellectual, occupational, physical, social, environmental, and spiritual. It is important for college students to find a balance between each of these areas in order to lead a healthy and fulfilling life. Learn more about the different categories of the "Wellness Wheel" here.

We encourage students to attend any of our events and activities held throughout the school year. It is our goal to provide ND students with programming and access to wellness resources on campus.  Please check back on a weekly basis for wellness information, updates, and activities, including our weekly Wellness Wednesdays and Stress Buster Fridays.

Happiness can be enhanced by reducing stress from the demands of daily activities.

The figures are staggering too: 3.3 million—the amount of people who lost their lives to alcohol in 2012 alone—and 5.9—the percentage of global deaths blamed on booze. “This translates to about one death every 10 seconds,” says Shekhar Saxena, M.D., and director of the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse at the World Health Organization.
