*Wellness is an expanded idea of health. Wellness is the pursuit of optimal health, encompassing physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, occupational, financial, social, and environmental well-being.
The following is taken from Sabina White's (UCSB) draft "White Paper: Wellness and Mental Health, Tier 3 Wellness Interventions":
**Wellness is defined as frequent positive affect, high life satisfaction, and infrequent negative affect (Lyubomirsky, Sheldon, and Schkade, 2005). Thus wellness interventions are those strategies that benefit students by decreasing negative affect and increasing positive affect and life satisfaction. Wellness interventions are those that enhance the mental and physical health of students at the University of California through positive engagement. Positive engagement involves connecting students to campus and community resources that help students enhance their well-being.
