Student Wellness at Bristol Community College understands that your well-being can be improved by having access to physical and mental healthcare resources as well as knowledge of organizations at Bristol and in the community. This page includes information about local and national resources that can support your holistic health needs.

We want you to know that if you feel stressed, anxious, sad, or hopeless, you are not alone. These feelings may be a normal part of the college experience, but they may also be something that involves help to overcome.

Whether you are searching for tips to improve your emotional or physical health, worried about a potential mental or physical health problem, looking to help a friend, or interested in becoming an advocate, a great first step is to review these resources for college students.

No one has to go it alone. Student Wellness is available to help you navigate the process of choosing care and support and to provide direct counseling and referrals to meet your needs.

Remember, if you are contemplating suicide and are at risk of harming yourself, call 911 or 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

Mental Health and Wellness

  • Free, Anonymous Mental Health Screenings
    Mental health is a key part of your overall health. Brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a mental health professional - they are a checkup from your neck up. This program is completely anonymous and confidential, and immediately following the brief questionnaire you will see your results, recommendations, and key resources.
  • Press Pause
    Press Pause is a digital self-care and coping experience created by The Jed Foundation and powered by PINK that helps us take a moment when we’re feeling overwhelmed to find a calmer state and recharge before we react or decide what to do next. Integrating these healthier and evidence-based ways of dealing with stress and anxiety into our daily lives improves our mental health and prevents us from reacting in ways that can cause more problems. The Press Pause hub provides tips, tools and videos to walk through strategies to Press Pause in 8 categories: BreatheMove, Get Grateful, Meditate, Connect, Reflect, Prioritize and Express.

The Fund holds an annual conference series, Young, Gifted & @Risk, and offers a Knowledge Center with curated expert information.
