Occupational wellness

concerns personal satisfaction and enrichment in one's life through work. It is usually better if you choose a career that is consistent with your personal values, beliefs and interests. One of STARS' missions is to help you discover what you are most passionate about and believe in doing as a career and advance you down that path, so that you feel fulfilled by what you do.

Physical wellness

concerns the need for creative, stimulating mental activities. Another one of STARS' missions is to challenge you by presenting you with various opportunities to participate in creative endeavours.

Spiritual wellness

concerns our search for meaning and purpose in human existence. An indicator of whether we are spiritually well is whether our actions are consistent with our beliefs and values. What STARS hopes to do is to help your actions align with the core of who you are.

Emotional wellness

concerns awareness and acceptance of one's feelings. STARS hopes to help you grow into an emotionally well person capable of managing your own emotions, knowing your own limitations, coping effectively with stress and maintaining satisfying relationships with others.
