Online Mental Health Screenings
General online mental health screenings are anonymous screenings on several areas of mental health, including depression, anxiety, academic distress, eating concerns, frustration level, family stress, and alcohol use.
WellTrack Boost is available to students at any time of day from any location. WellTrack Boost features a wellness assessment that students can take one time, or on an as-needed basis, as well as regularly scheduled mood checks.
These tools help students understand the activities associated with changes in mood and motivation, as well as to identify patterns in their daily activities and how they are associated with changes in emotional states.
WellTrack Boost also includes programs called "Courses" that can be completed at a student's own pace with content focused on:
- Anxiety & Stress
- Finding Purpose & Meaning
- Healthy Sleep
- Inner Calm/Mindfulness
- Public Speaking
The Public Speaking program also includes a 3D simulation to replicate the opportunity to practice public speaking in a large classroom setting. Coping tools on the site use aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy to help students cope with distress. These include guided mindful meditation exercises, thought diary, activity scheduling, cognitive distortion, psycho-education and more.
