Collegiate Behavioral Health "Mind Body Connection"
University Counseling Services (UCS) has expanded its programming to reflect a growing emphasis on primary prevention and treating the whole person. Our mental health focus has been expanded to include holistic programming designed to not only prevent and treat but also promote and maintain health and well being. Programs such as stress management, smoking cessation, healthy eating and meditation are just a few of those being offered that incorporate wellness promotion into behavioral change programs.
Our aim is to offer students assistance in their pursuit of optimal health and positive lifestyle choices that will enhance their lives and contribute to their academic success.
University Health Service (UHS) is supported through tuition dollars. All Case students who are registered for one or more credit hours are eligible to make use of the services offered within UHS. Full-time students who attend the Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA), the Cleveland Institute of Music (CIM), or the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine (OCPM) are also eligible to use the services offered within UHS by paying a mandatory fee each semester (Fall and Spring) to their respective school.
Here at UHS, our goal is to help you stay healthy and productive so you can get the most education and enjoyment out of your years at Case, CIA, CIM or OCPM.
UHS is staffed by several professionals, all of whom share an interest in college health. These include physicians, nurse practitioners, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and registered nurses. A number of the physicians are affiliated with University Hospitals of Cleveland and with the Case School of Medicine.

The Dancer Wellness Program is a program designed to assist dancers, dance educators, and medical care practioners who interface with dancers. The goal is to provide a wide array of information about the dancers' individual instrument, that being their body, both to the dancer and to the instructors, practitioners and medical professionals with whom the dancer may interact. With integration of theory provided by lecture classes such as kinesiology the overall intention and goals of the Dancer Wellness Program is to:
- Aid in making the dancers' training more efficient and effective
- Aid in preventing injuries
- Provide valuable resources and information to assist in the rehabilitation of injuries
- Assist educators and medical care practioners by providing valuable quantifiable information about the dancer that can not be derived by simple observations in the dance technique class nor in the rehearsal studio
- Continue to develop a body of quantifiable data that uniquely addresses the physical characteristics and demands of dancers' musculoskeletal system in order to promote the ongoing research into dancer health, physical attributes, injury prevention and biomechanical efficiency.
