DBSA Wellness Wheel

Living with depression or bipolar disorder can demand a lot of you. Wellness comes from knowing your strengths and finding ways to move forward, one step at a time.

The DBSA Wellness Wheel is an easy-to-use tool that gives you a complete picture of the progress you’ve already made in your wellness journey. As you create your own wheel, you will see your strengths in perspective and discover ways to move toward the life you want to live.

A wellness tool created with you in mind

The Wellness Wheel concept has been widely used by mental health experts as a tool for recovery. DBSA’s Wellness Wheel reflects the real-world challenges you face and the ways you’re rising up to meet them.

We have drawn on multiple research studies and our own lived experience to create the Wellness Wheel and the educational tools that go with it. Our goal is to support you in celebrating your progress, and encourage you to explore new pathways for learning and personal growth.

You’ve completed your wellness wheel. Now what?

Your completed wellness wheel will reveal areas you feel strong in and areas you may want to address in some way. A great way to help make sense of your wheel is to create goals. Use the goal planner worksheet on the last page to plan your next steps towards wellness with the DBSA Wellness Wheel.
