The MindBody Connection provides space for students to learn how to relieve stress and learn more about mindfulness. Featuring massage chairs, art supplies, and a quiet space, the MindBody Connection is a great place for students to unwind and get back in touch with their minds and bodies.


The MindBody Connection is a collaboration of UMKC Counseling Services and Student Health and Wellness. The mission of the MindBody Connection is to provide a space where students can learn skills to manage academic and personal stressors. The MindBody Connection also enhances student development and academic success by helping students:

  • Identify and capitalize on their personal strengths
  • Learn and implement new skills
  • Access relevant campus and community resources
