What is well-being?
Well-being is more than the absence of illness. Rather, it is how good we feel about ourselves and our abilities to grow and thrive in life. Put simply, our quality of life.

*Clinical counseling services
Diagnosis and treatment of mental health challenges and/or substance use

Mental health and well-being coaching

Referral to clinical counseling services
*A non-clinical check-in may be therapeutic, but it is not therapy. Rather, it is an opportunity to provide a safe, compassionate, non-judgmental, and supportive presence to help someone explore individual needs, provide support, and identify a plan of action. Supportive tools may include relevant tools, resources, information, education, and appropriate referrals to formalized health care services.
*Clinical counseling services are typically provided through primary care and/or specialized health care services, which include treatment services like addiction and mental health therapy, psychiatric consultations, and medication management.
