Course Program:

BICD’s Wellness Program provides a safe space for students to explore coping skills and strategies to mitigate life’s stressors and challenges. Students will learn the importance of self-care while discovering and illuminating their authentic selves. Topics include grounding, mindfulness, gratitude, safety planning, meditation, grief management, and more. Our goal is for students to learn and practice how to be well in different, ever-changing spaces, to consider their health and wellness, and to move from coping to resilience.
