Family/Personal

This group of webpages focuses on intensely personal contributors to wellness: mood, relationships, responsibilities and habits. As members of the BU and BMC community, we are expected to function as if everything is completely fine in our lives. Our jobs require us to be on the top of our game. However, an ill parent, an abusive spouse or a gambling problem can turn our world upside-down. It can affect many aspects of our lives, including ability to focus at work. Things like depression and anxiety hit most people at some point in their lives. For some, depression and anxiety are constant companions throughout their lives. Even good things, like having a child, can cause stress. There are practical and emotional things to deal with.
The pages in this section have some educational information as well as resources and tips to help when there are concerns.
