What is Wellness?

Wellness is being aware of and making active choices towards living a life that is healthy, balanced, and fulfilling. Wellness is more than just physical health - it is a balance and integration of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

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

"...a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential." - The National Wellness Institute

Student wellness is a top priority of Cal High and SRVUSD. 

The Cal High Wellness Center works in partnership with the counseling department and student support to offer resources in the area of social-emotional learning, support, and community resources. The Wellness Center is also a place for students to get additional social/emotional support when they are under stress through individual brief counseling, workshops, and short breaks from the school day.

In addition to our dedicated School Social Worker and Student Support Counselor, students may be supported by counseling interns and through participation in group activities. 

Students may access the Wellness Center directly by drop-in or appointment, or through a referral from a parent, teacher, or peer.
