The need for Student wellness is now being recognised and accepted by schools, education authorities, and educational professionals. While there are many factors that impact a student's academic attainment, their holistic wellness can no longer be ignored. It is an approach that focuses on supporting the whole child.

Not only do we need to pay special attention to their Emotional needs but also Personal, Intellectual, Physical, Environmental, Occupational, and Social factors.

As schools and colleges across the country have remained closed in past two years, students with trauma, difficult home situations, and anxiety need support now more than ever. The abrupt change can trigger stress and fear in students that can leave mental scars.

The role of the Wellness Seekers Academy is to support those academic institutions who are interested in implementing such programs with research based wellness courses that contribute to their self-development.

Why should you create a culture of wellness in your institution?

Students spend a significant amount of each week day in a classroom, making it not only a place to learn academics but also an opportunity to teach life skills that will serve them beyond the academic life, like self-care, community involvement, and fostering a sense of connection and belonging.

Wellness begins at Schools

START YOUNG! Today's children are the leaders of tomorrow. Therefore, it is very important for them to lead a satisfying life starting from childhood, through adolescence, and adulthood.

During their academic life, students also go through their share of challenges and they need to have coping mechanisms to handle the resultant anxiety and stress. Else, if will not only effect their emotional, physical, and social wellbeing, but will also take a hit on their mental health, day-to-day behaviours, actions, self-respect, and self-esteem.

Therefore, it is mandatory to incorporate wellness programs in schools.

The Wellness Seekers Academy has designed customised wellness programs for students to promote their awareness on holistic wellness for a fulfilling, satisfying, and successful academic and personal life. The program entails:

  • 40-hour wellness periods divided into modules.
  • Highly interactive modules include role-plays, exercises, tests, group activities, videos, etc.
  • Orientation and concluding sessions also for teachers and parents.
  • Wellness program available both offline and online.
  • Goal setting by students.
  • Student evaluation and certification.

Wellness for Teachers

While managing the students in class amidst immense pressure for good academic results, time management concerns, etc., teachers also undergo immense stress and anxiety and may compromise on their mental health and wellness.

Although, they may be equipped to handle them, they still need to understand the various aspects causing them and develop adequate skills to cope up with them from a holistic angle. In other words, they need to incorporate the ways to achieve holistic wellness.

To enable the teachers get away from their stressful routine and focus on their own wellbeing, the Wellness Seekers Academy has designed suitable offsite workshops:

  • Wellness Orientation Workshop.
  • Overnight retreat spread over the next day.
  • Includes Yoga session and the 8 Dimensions of Wellness.
  • Interactive workshop includes group activities, role-plays, exercises, etc.
  • Self-assessments.
  • Individual goal setting for self-development.
  • Program Certification.

Wellness for Colleges & Universities

When students step into college life, they experience a sense of freedom without the pressure of someone constantly monitoring them. However, they do not realise the implications of this major change.

The absence of a smooth transition could lead to anxiety and stress and they may not even be aware of the reasons and aspects causing them. This could affect their mental health and holistic wellness.

Therefore, they need to be aware on the aspects affecting them and develop the relevant skills to handle them for better academic performance and overall wellbeing.

Keeping this mind, the Wellness Seekers Academy offers elective credit-based wellness courses:

  • 40 hour academic program with program credits.
  • Available as an elective subject.
  • Interactive courses include assignments, tutorials, group activities, etc.
  • Include class work and homework on a weekly basis.
  • Available both offline and online sessions.
  • Student evaluation and certification.
  • Goal setting for the future.

Course Certification

The value of certification!

Skills have become the global currency of the 21st century economies!

In a world where competition for jobs, pay increases, and academic success continues to increase, certifications offer hope because they are a credible, third-party assessment of one's skill and knowledge for a given subject.

Every student who successfully completes the Wellness Course receives a Certificate of Completion. These are issued digitally and the student would be able to download a digital copy of the certificate.

These Certficates can also be co-branded / co-issued with the Institution's logo and signatures.
