What is the wellness continuum?

During all stages of your life, and from one day to the next, it is normal to have varying needs for wellness support. The Wellness Continuum is a tool to help identify your current status and understand that it can vary within time. Consult, explore and select services and resources available to you at uOttawa and within the community

This is not a diagnostic tool. You can navigate the menu to learn more and find services and resources that are right for you.
