Stress Management and Wellness

Here at Mizzou, we want our students to feel supported. We know that life can get overwhelming for everyone, no matter where you are in your college career. Let’s go through a few options that we have on campus that can help you manage your stress.


During the start of the pandemic, Mizzou launched a partnership with Sanvello. Sanvello is an app that walks students through stress relief exercises. It also addresses various symptoms of anxiety and depression, which can be helpful for faculty and students who might have had trouble doing so before. The great thing about this partnership is that you can access all premium benefits by signing up with your school email.

Sleeping Sections on Campus

We all wish we had more hours in the day. Often times, we miss out on sleep so that we can have more hours. In fact, researchers find that more than 70% of college students get less than eight hours of sleep a night, which has been proven to negatively impact academic success more than it helps. We know that as students you’re going to do what you want, so we’ve designated different spots on campus for you to catch some Z’s in between classes. You can find a map of them here. Of course, be mindful of Campus Covid policies.

Wellness Events

If you’re looking for something a little more personal and Zen, Mizzou offers a variety of wellness events such as weekly Noontime Meditation and Deep Stretch Yoga sessions. You can find more information on both of these and more on MU Engage. The best part is, they’re all free! So if you have time and are interesting in peace-ing out, follow the link!

We’re Here to Help

One of the ways we dedicate ourselves to your wellbeing is by offering a variety of wellness centers that you can choose from based on your needs. Through our wellbeing centers, we offer counseling to all enrolled students as well as 24/7 crisis support in case of emergencies. All of this at no extra cost!
