Werklund Wellbeing 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.


Take a Movement Break

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. It takes about 30 minutes to visit them all.
