There are three main components to WellTrack:
Take the Wellness Assessment and measure your levels of stress, anxiety and depression. Begin a course tailored for you to address your needs and engage with WellTrack over the next few weeks. Separate on-line courses are offered for stress/anxiety, depression, and phobias (including public speaking). Throughout your journey in the WellTrack course, learn the tools that you need to take control of your mood, and get on the right track to feeling better.
Get introduced to MoodCheck, your daily mood tracker, and monitor how your activities throughout the day impact how you feel. MoodCheck sends two reminders per day via text or email for students to rate their mood in the moment, what they are doing, who they are with, and where they are. The data is used to provide summary information on what activities increase and decrease student’s mood.
Counselor assisted WellTrack. Students can work through these on-line modules on their own or they can complete WellTrack with the assistance of a UWB counselor. The student will give permission to the UWB counselor to reveiw data and see their progress on their on-line courses as they integrate the on-line learning into their individual or group counseling.
