Every year, college students are affected by a multitude of health issues. Wellness Central, a new online health and wellness tool with content tailored to the needs of California Community College students, is now available on Canvas. Containing resources about emotional, social, physical, academic, financial, and spiritual health and wellness topics, the tool has been tested with current students who described it as “comprehensive,” user- friendly, and “something that’s been sorely lacking for CCC students.”
Wellness Central was created by Health Services Association – California Community Colleges (HSACCC), the California Virtual Campus – Online Education Initiative (CVC-OEI), the Foundation for California Community Colleges, and the California Community College Mental Health & Wellness Association (MHWA). Promoted by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, Wellness Central is beginning its pilot year.
