- Emotional – This dimension covers emotional health through learning to recognize, express, and control feelings and moods.
- Intellectual – This aspect covers mental health through developing creativity, learning ability, and problem solving skills.
- Occupational – This dimension covers job satisfaction through learning individual aptitudes and skills, and finding meaning in work.
- Social – This aspect covers community connections through learning the part we play in our interconnected world.
- Spiritual – This dimension covers larger life questions through learning to choose and live by a set of values that gives meaning to our lives.
