Your well-being depends not only upon physical health, but also such mental health yardsticks as stress management, self-compassion and relationship health. An additional aspect of emotional well-being is  financial wellness, which contributes greatly to your levels of self-worth and mental composure.  

Stanford recently announced its new 1:1 Financial Coaching resource — an educational and informational service meant to help students and postdocs improve their financial literacy.

Offered through Stanford’s top-ranked financial literacy program, Mind Over Money, 1:1 Financial Coaching is unique among financial coaching programs on U.S. college campuses in that its coaches are predominately alumni, according to Kelly Takahashi, director of financial wellness and associate bursar with Student Financial Services.

In addition to financial coaching, Mind Over Money offers the online tool Haven Money as an introduction to various personal finance topics, as well as personal finance events and workshops throughout the academic year.

More information, including a list of coaches, is available at mindovermoney.stanford.edu.
