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
