1 in 5 Canadians will experience a mental illness in their life, but this experience will impact 5 in 5 Canadians. That’s why we work to eliminate stigma, increase awareness, and create an inclusive, caring campus each year with our Speak Up Speak Out campaign. Wellness starts with making small healthy choices every day that lead to long term improvements in our wellbeing. The Mind=Body Challenge is a unique two (2) week wellness challenge designed to help students reach their health goals by participating in fun activities and engaging in new resources to keep your mind and body strong.

All of the BCITSA Wellness services, programs, and campaigns are designed specifically for you as a BCIT student. If you have an idea for a program or event, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at wellness@bcitsa.ca.

Wellness goes by many different names: physical health, mental health, peace, happiness, and more. Being well is an ongoing process and it looks different for everyone. We think of wellness as…

“A dynamic state in which a person in their environment has the opportunity to balance all eight dimensions to thrive and realize their goals.”

The BCIT Student Association Health & Wellness team works to create an environment that promotes student well-being by providing a range of health promotion services across all campuses and connecting students with resources in our community.
