Look for announcements here and on social media about special programming related to the Mind Spa.
The Mind Spa is a space designed to help Western Michigan University students develop and practice the relaxation skills that will enhance their academic productivity and their sense of well-being. Relaxation strategies are an integral part of treatment approaches to depression, anxiety, anger management, and sleep disorders, among other issues. Students will find a comfortable space and resources to develop or strengthen these skills. Please read our Mind Spa Agreement at the bottom of the page before using the rooms.
