Emotional well-being is being aware of and accepting of your feelings and being able to manage your emotions in a constructive and supportive way, and having the tools and resources needed to navigate life's challenges.
Your Dartmouth College Faculty/Employee Assistance Program, in partnership with GuidanceResources, gives you and your family members confidential support, resources and information for personal and work-life issues. These services are provided at no charge to you.
The Wellness at Dartmouth office offers free live and pre-recorded webinars covering a variety of topics to help support your emotional well-being.
If you are a patient of Dartmouth Health Connect, you have access to a Behavioral Health Specialist as part of your care team.
The Tucker Center provides pastoral counseling, free mindfulness sessions and provides access to a walking labyrinth as well as prayer and meditation rooms.
