  • Reset Room: The AHHS Reset Room, which is new this year, is located in the Wellness Center. The purpose is to provide students with a space where they can independently regulate their emotions and be able to return to class ready to learn. The students will always have the option to speak with Wellness staff before or after utilizing this room if they want.

WELLNESS for you

Self-care can mean a lot of things! And the importance of self-care has gotten a lot of attention over the last few years. But self-care isn't just manis and pedis, massages, a day of golf, time with friends or a self-imposed time out.


Self-care is also saying NO when you should!
