Promote Mental and Physical Wellness in 2013
Through its Wellness Initiative, SAMHSA pledges to promote wellness for people with mental and substance use disorders by motivating individuals, organizations, and communities to take action and work toward improved quality of life, cardiovascular health, and decreased early mortality rates.
Wellness includes many dimensions of health: physical, emotional, financial, social, occupational, intellectual, environmental, and spiritual. SAMHSA's Wellness Initiative aims to inspire individuals to improve one physical health behavior and explore their talents, skills, interests, social connections, and environment to incorporate other dimensions of wellness.
