Wellness Center

The Wellness Center believes that academic success for all students starts with being healthy in body, mind and spirit. To this end, Wellness coordinates non-judgmental, student-focused health, mental health, and substance abuse services and programs for students at the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts.


A variety of confidential services are available to students, including mental health and substance abuse counseling, nursing services, case management, support/empowerment groups, conflict mediation, referrals to community agencies and more. Wellness places priority on the whole person: academic and physical and emotional well being are all priorities.
