Health and Wellness Resources

Sustainability isn’t just environmentally focused, it also is holistic and multidimensional. Before we can take care of our planet, we must take care of our community. Before we can take care of our community, we must take care of ourselves. Personal sustainability isn’t just about individual actions, it is about health and well-being.

NatureRx at UMB

Research conducted for the book “Nature Rx: Improving College-Student Mental Health” revealed that a number of colleges and universities have recently turned to an ancient source — time in nature — to contribute to their students’ health and well-being. UMB encourages students, staff, and faculty to spend time outside to reduce stress and anxiety, increase energy, and boost their mood!
