Well-being is defined as the state of being comfortable, healthy, or happy. It’s hard to measure because it is subjective and self-reported. Well-being integrates a vast number of variables including living conditions, life satisfaction, mental and physical health.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, during the 2021-22 school year, 70 percent of public schools reported an increase in the percentage of their students seeking mental health services at school and 76 percent reported an increase in staff voicing concerns about their students exhibiting symptoms of depression, anxiety, and trauma.
“Wellness is a connection of paths: knowledge and action.”
