WellTrack is available to students at any time of day, from any location. WellTrack features a wellness assessment that students can take one time, or on an as-needed basis, to help them understand the activities associated with when they feel better and worse, and to identify patterns in their daily activities and how they are feeling.
WellTrack also includes programs that can be completed at a student's own pace with content focused on Anxiety and Stress, Depression, and Pubic Speaking. The Public Speaking program also includes a virtual reality component to simulate public speaking in a large classroom setting.
Coping tools on the site can be used to help students cope with distress.
Students can download the companion WellTrack app for iOS and Android.
