Wellbeing Resources

Here at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine, we believe in cura personalis, the sanctity of human life, dignity and respect of all people, devotion to social justice, humility, the multifaceted nature of wellness, and well-balanced healthy relationships.

We support wellness across multiple domains including academic, professional, mental, physical, and social/interpersonal. In partnership with our fully integrated partners, SSM Health and SLUCare Physician Group, we seek to accomplish this by creating the SLUCare 4 Self & Others wellbeing task force, wellness event planning, assessment of our community's mental health, and provision of health-related resources.
