Did you know that optimal health is linked to academic success?

Yes, maintaining a healthy lifestyle empowers you to perform better. And healthful living extends well beyond regular exercise and eating right. The ability to nurture and care for your emotional (or inner) self is extremely important. It means setting aside time to do something special for yourself and others, managing challenges with a positive attitude, setting personal goals, and recognizing when to seek help.

The information provided here is a general guide that can enable you to apply your knowledge and skills to achieve optimal success in college and change your life for the better.

Another major resource is the Mt. SAC Student Health Center, located on the east side of campus near the pedestrian bridge. There you will find a team of licensed mental health and medical professionals who stand ready to help you GetAHEAD.
