NYU's approach to the health of our students is one of “wellness”: supporting students in all aspects of their lives in order to enable them to achieve success. A comprehensive set of services and resources -- including the Wellness Exchange, LiveWellNYU, and the Student Health Center -- exist to address the full spectrum of students’ health and wellness needs. We know how devoted and concerned our employees are about the well-being of our students, and we want to provide you with guidance and resources to proactively help students maintain good health or to respond in cases of student mental distress.
With a focus on preventive health, LiveWellNYU is a university-wide initiative designed to engage and empower students in achieving their best possible health. LiveWellNYU provides tools and resources for individual students to maintain good health and promotes how faculty and staff; student leaders; parents; family; friends; and community partners can work together in a united and coordinated effort to improve the health and wellness of our students.
As an administrator or staff member, you engage with students every day; your support and guidance make a difference. Students may never interact with health professionals during their NYU experience, but they will always be exposed to and interact with administrators and staff. This website is intended to be a resource containing suggestions for what you can do support the overall wellness of NYU students.
