Holistic wellness is often modelled using four quadrants representative of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. In order to achieve balance, we need to constantly be paying attention to our own needs, goals, health, and accomplishments. We need to make the time to care for and develop all of who we are.

Mental health is a component of wellness allowing an individual to be cognizant of their own strengths; deal with life stress adequately; live, study, and work well; and contribute to their community. Every one of us has mental health.
Mental health and mental illness can co-exist and people with mental illness can still live very fulfilling lives and excel in post-secondary studies and the work force.
