A new app created at UAB recently hit the App Store and Google Play. B Well helps students easily access resources on mobile devices and build a self-care plan that encourages healthy habits.

Self-care plans in the B Well app are tailored to each student and focus on good habits in sleep, movement, nutrition, routine and resiliency; users can create private habit checklists and wellness journals to monitor their health journey. Plus, B Well includes self-help tools that put mental health services, mindfulness resources and related campus events at your fingertips.

“This app originated from discussions with the Student Counseling Services advisory board and our student government associations, which shows just how innovative and creative our students are,” said John Jones, vice president for Student Affairs. “They saw a need in their peers and worked together with partners across campus to bring their vision to life – a vision to help students be healthy and well.”
