Bennett College recognizes the importance of physical and mental health. Each student has the privilege of using these services. Health Services’ mission is to enhance the educational process by modifying and/or removing health-related barriers to learning. Located in the Catchings Complex, the unit promotes an optimal level of wellness, enables individuals to make informed decisions about health-related concerns, and empowers individuals to be self-directed consumers of health services. There is a doctor available in the center four days a week and a registered nurse available through the week during regular business hours.

Health Services provides health education workshops and seminars. Services include physical examination for health problems, informed and self-care treatment, physical support, and psychological support when necessary.
