Emotional Resources

Emotional wellness is becoming more aware of the feelings and emotions we feel every day, and learning how to cope with the challenges life brings. Both positive and negative emotions are important parts of yourself, but understanding and accepting them can be difficult. Having the tools you need to be able to handle the ups and downs of life can start with finding support in family and friends, but it can also include support from Upstate.
