What is Wellness?


Wellness is a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential. It is multi-dimensional and holistic, encompassing mental, physical, emotional, social, and spiritual well being, as well as lifestyle. Wellness is positive and affirming. The message of mental health recovery is not remission or a miracle cure, but the process of living a fulfilling life despite illness and loss.

What is Recovery?

Recovery is a personal journey of wellness, resiliency and transformation. Recovery involves developing hope, a sense of self, supportive relationships, empowerment, social inclusion, coping skills and meaning. Recovery is supported by personal responsibility, self-advocacy, education, support and hope.

Wellness and Recovery are guiding principles of the NYS Office of Mental Health. The information posted on this site is a collection of Ulster County resources designed to help individuals craft their own individuals plans for Wellness & Recovery.
