Health and Wellness

CCM is committed to preparing whole artists and scholars to take their places on the world's stage. Whole artists and scholars are not only well-trained in their chosen art form, they are also prepared to thrive in high-stakes, high-pressure media and performing arts environments.

CCM’s integrative program of health & wellness for artists teaches students to manage stress, anxiety and burn-out. Our goal is to position CCM graduates for long, healthy and productive lives and careers.

Dalziel also hosts in-person “Let’s Talk” sessions from 1-2 p.m. each Tuesday at CCM. These 15-20 minute one-on-one mental health consultations are free and confidential, which makes them a great resource for students who may not need traditional counseling but who could benefit from one-on-one support.

Here's what to expect when you meet with "Ms. D" for a "Let's Talk" consultation:

  • Feedback
  • Support Collaboration
  • Problem Solving
  • Connecting to On and Off Campus Resources

Sessions are offered on a "first come, first served" basis. Learn more about CAPS' "Let's Talk" sessions here.
