Vanderbilt has arranged for students to have free access to Headspace – an award-winning, research-backed digital tool for mindful living with over 1,200+ hours of themed meditations, sleep content, mindful movement exercises, and focus music. With over 75+ research collaborations and 26 published studies as the mindfulness digital intervention of choice, Headspace has been shown to reduce stress, improve focus, increase resilience and happiness. Enroll in Vanderbilt’s program here.

When you meditate with Headspace, every minute counts toward a healthier, happier you. Now, you can keep track of how you’re feeling with My Progress. Find it in the Profile tab in the app, and see how meditation and mindfulness make a difference over time.

  • Science-backed surveys: Measure your stresslevels with quick, monthly check-ins.
  • Short & sweet journaling: Jot down notes and reflections, and come back to them when you need to.
  • Progress at a glance: Get an overview of how your stresslevels change as you continue your practice.

Student Care Coordination (SCC) is committed to helping students connect with the right support, in the right place, at the right time.  Depending on your needs, the right support may include connecting with a therapist to help you meet your personal and/or academic goals.

We recognize that some students may wish or need to have therapy more frequently or for a longer duration of time than the UCC can provide. In these instances, connecting with a therapy provider off-campus in the Nashville community or in another location may be the best place for you to receive support more frequently or for a longer period of time, or if you are not in Tennessee.
