Islands of Wellness

Thank you to those that attended Islands of Wellness 2019! See you next year!

Join us for Islands of Wellness, a youth mental health fair, inspired by the story of Inside Out and SAMHSA’s Eight Dimensions of Wellness!

Activities teach kids and their family how to manage stress and take care of their mental health in a fun and interactive way. Children will complete challenges based on the 8 Dimensions of Wellness. After you have traveled to all 8 Islands of Wellness, return to the registration table for prizes. Don't miss Serenity Point to learn coping skills and Resource Reef to find community resources.

The 8 Dimensions of Wellness (Islands) are:

  1. Emotional—Coping effectively with life and creating satisfying relationships
  2. Environmental—Good health by occupying pleasant, stimulating environments that support well-being
  3. Financial—Satisfaction with current and future financial situations
  4. Intellectual—Recognizing creative abilities and finding ways to expand knowledge and skills
  5. Occupational—Personal satisfaction and enrichment from one’s work
  6. Physical—Recognizing the need for physical activity, healthy foods, and sleep
  7. Social—Developing a sense of connection, belonging, and a well-developed support system
  8. Spiritual—Expanding a sense of purpose and meaning in life

This event is a collaboration of LifeWays, Baker College of Jackson and Drug Free Jackson.
