Student Wellness

Our mission is to promote a balanced lifestyle, both personally and professionally, through intentional engagement in the Six Dimensions of Wellness.

Student Wellness Programs

What do you think about stress? Do you believe that stress is bad for you; that it gets in the way of accomplishing your goals? If so, you’re not alone.

Surprisingly, however, this belief could be amplifying negative outcomes and keeping stress from helping you reach your true potential. Let’s start the conversation on how to use stress to enhance, rather than hinder, your performance—in school, at work, and in life.

How we talk about suicide matters. Talk Saves Lives is a brief introduction on what you can do to help recognize and prevent suicide in your family, friends, peers, and patients.

Yogalates is sometimes thought of as a fusion practice of "East meets West," because it merges the ancient Indian practice of yoga with the Western practice of Pilates, which was developed by Joseph Pilates in 1920s Germany. It combines the yogic focus on enhanced mind and body awareness, strength, stamina, flexibility and balance, with Pilates techniques to improve posture and create a strong, stable foundation for movement. 

Enjoy a series of gentle, restorative poses, that release tension, allow you to de-stress, and ease the mind. We'll spend 45 minutes enhancing our mind/body connection.

Join us as we hone our professional communication skills, including bedside manner, connecting with peers, overcoming public speaking performance anxiety, and managing appropriate boundaries with challenging mentors.

Prevent burnout, feelings of low energy, and the impact of trauma events by balancing and embracing each of the Six Dimensions of Wellness: physical, emotional, occupational, spiritual, social, and intellectual wellness.

Maintaining proper care for yourself is a great step toward ensuring the best possible outcomes for those whom you will care for in the future. Dedicated to your overall success, HSC Counseling Services will provide opportunities to experience and enjoy each of the Six Dimensions of Wellness through campus wide programming.
