Eight Dimensions of Well-being

At BCIT, well-being is approached from a holistic perspective using the Eight Dimensions of Well-being framework to support student wellness.

Well-being is a dynamic state in which a person in their environment has the opportunity to balance intellectual, occupational, physical, financial, psychological, environmental, spiritual and social needs to thrive and realize their goals.

Every individual’s optimal well-being is influenced by factors unique to their lives. What may enhance and support one individual’s well-being may not work for another. It is up to us to do our best to maintain a balance that works for our individual needs in all eight dimensions.
