"For [our students and student-athletes] to be able to use those resources and have something to fall back on when they needed it, whether we're going through a good stretch or a bad stretch, was something that really helped us out."

"I really appreciate this. Great idea to add the video review the first time [we] see the numbers [on the reports]. Really helpful. I am happy with our numbers.

"I showed my Management Team this afternoon. We are floating some ideas about benefits and how we can better support Work/Life Balance. I'm going to show it to a couple of the regional/division supervisors... Its working for us, it’ll work for them."

"I just got done with the women's basketball team meeting. It was very well received! I'm pretty sure that we at least had 100% of the team load it... Some were doing it when I just left. One girl said, 'Remember when I told you yesterday that I was going to need therapy? Well, here's my therapy!' From GVU Student Success Coordinator) "Makes my heart smile!"

"...I'm proud of our University for bringing Wellness U to campus...This app gives us an opportunity to find self-help anonymously and comfortably...

Wellness U has given me an outlet and a safe place where I can find self-motivation when I am having tough days. It gives me the capability to remind myself of my self-worth and purpose that I have in this world...I believe that Wellness U will help myself and others students build a foundation of bettering their mental health and finding ground to seek additional help in the future."

-GVU Male Student-Athlete

19-year-old college student-athlete:

"Most of my problems start in my thoughts... it's like 99% of my problems are all up there, and I self-talk myself into believing them. My affirmations allow me to get to the 1% of reality and solution focus. When I habit form around being solution-oriented, I confidently move forward daily. Not every day is perfect, but I know how to stack reality against negative self-talk…." AMD

16-year-old high school student-athlete:

"Wellness U is like a workout plan or going to the gym. Once I moved beyond immediate gratification to "just feel better" and embraced delayed gratification, "this is a process," my whole outlook on daily action changed. I work on myself every day, and no one even knows the skills I am learning on my own. Yeh, I have become more resilient, and I am also a better teammate and friend." JL

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Wellness U app tracking about me?

The Wellness U app is 100% confidential, and we do not sell any anonymous data. The app does not track location or IP address nor ask for emails, telephone numbers, birthdates, or names. No personal information/assessment answers are traceable back to any user. Codes given by an organization can not be associated with a real person. The app stores assessment scores and content to access timestamps against an anonymous user ID and knows the history of the anonymous user ID but can not associate any data with a real person. For more information, please visit our Privacy Policy.

Do I have to log on with a code if I am part of an organization, and if I use the code, is it still anonymous?

Users log in confidentially, even with a code provided to them by an organization. The code is used to utilize specific help resources within the Wellness U app and help understand the culture within a community.

Is there a cost for the Wellness U app?

There is no cost to an individual. It is free to download from the Apple app store and Google Play store. The organization has taken on the cost of the wellness platform.

Has the methodology in the Wellness U app been researched?

Clinically tested methods and backed by research from the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Kenneth Yeager, Ph.D., L.I.S.W. developed the methods used in the app. The research and testing found that the Wellness U training method for vicarious trauma decreased burnout measures sustained for several months. The Wellness U app uses a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy and cognitive processing therapy techniques. These approaches help to address common effects of exposure to trauma; these include but are not limited to hyper-vigilance avoidance, trust, control, and intimacy (sharing and processing exposure to a trauma with others). As the stress responses progress, individuals become at greater risk of depression, anxiety, substance misuse, sleep disturbance, and unexplained anger, to name a few. The app provides an effective way to understand how to manage your response to stress and anxiety.

Is my fitness data in Optimum U tied to the Wellness U app?

No. The two apps are entirely different and completely separate. The Optimum U Health Coaching app is provided to help those looking to increase their physical and mental health. We believe the two go together. - it is hard to be healthy in one without the other.
