Werklund well-being walks

Werklund, in partnership with the Campus Mental Health Strategy, is encouraging you to get out and walk to support your mental health during UFlourish. Ten markers have been set up across campus, each one sharing a unique wellbeing resource. Listen to a mindfulness podcast, read community stories of struggle and resilience, or complete a wellness self-check-in.

Take a movement break to learn about the different resources available for students, staff, and faculty at UCalgary - it only takes about 30 minutes to visit all ten markers.
