Colleges and universities are beginning to address the well-being of eighteen- to twenty-five-year-old young adults in their college educational experiences by hiring well-being professionals.
For example, this employment listing from a highly-competitive private liberal arts college in the Northeast is for a director of health and wellness education:
“The Director of Health and Wellness Education will develop, implement and evaluate a broad-based health and wellness education program with a focus on alcohol and drug use, sexual assault prevention and response, stress management, and bystander intervention programs” (HigherEdJobs.com).
While this is a good start, we have observed that most wellness education programs are likely reactions to mental and physical health crises, with a focus on alcohol and drug use, sexual assault, and stress management.
