The BCIT Student Association is dedicated to supporting student health and well being.

Crash Course Cooking | Student Breakfast Club | Fresh Fruit Fridays | Brush It Off | Weekly Mindfulness Drop-in | Nap Room

We do this by providing eligible students with a Health and Dental insurance plan, as well as by offering a variety of programs and services designed to promote a healthy lifestyle and to bring awareness to physical and mental wellness.

Health and Wellness events sponsored by the SA are fun, informative & include:

  • Zen Lounge – Stressed out? Relax with a FREE massage!
  • Speak Up Speak Out – a three day informative mental health awareness campaign packed with lots of fun activities
  • Doggy De-Stress Day Research has shown that spending time with a furry friend can improve your mood and reduce stress. What better way to relieve some of the stress and anxiety of exams than to spend a few minutes enjoying the company of some cute and cuddly dogs?
  • QPR (Question, Persuade, Refer) a 60 minute suicide prevention training course. According to the 2013 National College Health Assessment, approximately 1 in 10 Canadian post-secondary students report that they seriously considered suicide in the last 12 months. Join the BCIT community effort to help save lives from the most preventable kind of death. To sign up, drop by the Student Association Centre in SE 2, or e-mail healthandwellness@bcitsa.ca
