Jags Live Well is an initiative created to promote a lifestyle of holistic wellness. And holistic wellness—especially students’ mental and emotional wellbeing—is very important right now, given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the USG’s Mental Health Initiative, we’ve expanded our offerings.

In addition to the incredible resources already offered at Augusta University, we’ve introduced a comprehensive Wellness Hub, an after-hours 24/7 support line, and after-hours psychiatry prescribing opportunities.

Wellness Hub

The Wellness Hub is a comprehensive online resource dedicated to holistic wellness. It's home to articles and videos about mental, physical, emotional, and social health, as well as campus resources for Augusta University students.

This includes emotional, physical, occupational, intellectual, financial, social, environmental, and spiritual well-being. Each dimension of wellness affects your overall quality of life and striving for holistic wellness will help you achieve all of your goals.
