Alice’s Emotional Pursuit To Wellness
January 19, 2012 ~ Emotional Pursuit to Wellness
My name is Alice Taylor and I have started my Pursuit to Wellness today. I chose to complete the online mental health screening and turn it into the H&W office in the Union. Surprisingly, I was very optimistic before I completed the screening but when I got my results I was confused. The results page had, written at the top of the page, Bipolar Disorder. As I read on it said that my responses are NOT consistent with someone who is Bi-polar and if I needed counseling services to contact the counseling office at UND (I would do later that day). That threw me for a loop but I decided to stay optimistic and move on. I chose to contact the counseling office due to some stressors I have in my life right now with the hopes of finding better ways to combat the stressors. What a coincidence! On a final note: Altru’s Pursuit of Wellness gave me the push to do what I have been pondering the past few weeks (contacting counseling services). I have learned to try new things and not be afraid. You never know what you may find.
