The Student Wellness Center is a holistic place that encourages, educates, facilitates, and connects students with needed resources. Students are empowered to make informed decisions about their health and cultivate well-being through education and outreach.
The mission of the Student Wellness Center at Kingsborough Community College is to support students and encourage the pursuit of healthier lifestyles. The Student Wellness Center provides consultations and education on how to balance study, relationships and life commitments. It also provides guidance on how to incorporate the interaction between mind and body. The Student Wellness Center offers a holistic approach and creates an environment that fosters positive change.
The Student Wellness Center is a merger of two services, the HELM Center and the outreach initiatives formerly organized by Counseling Services. The two services blended and now provide a more holistic approach to helping Kingsborough’s students.
Ilona Fridson, LCSW, is the Student Wellness Center Program Manager. She is responsible for overseeing the overall day-to-day operations of the Center. Maribel Mendoza is the Student Wellness Center’s Health Educator.
What is a Wellness appointment?
During wellness visit(s), a counselor will help to facilitate an environment where the student will be able to address their concerns, create a plan, problem solve, and develop healthy solutions targeted toward positive changes and transformations.
There are no trivial or complex questions about a student’s well-being whether it is emotional, health related or an academic issue.
