Mental Health Counseling
Seeking out mental health counseling is an act of bravery and shows that you are taking an active role in your self-care. We are glad you are here!
Counseling is a collaborative process requiring active participation. Counselors help to navigate issues, identify resources, look at problems from a new perspective, or develop skills that help students find solutions on their own. Our counselors are licensed professionals with extensive education and clinical experience.
Students come to counseling for a variety of reasons, both academic and personal. Some common topics include:
- Anxiety or depression
- Deciding whether or not to stay in school
- Relationship problems
- Coping with stress
- Suicidal thoughts
- Difficulty in class
The Counseling and Health Center has a Nurse Practitioner available to provide a variety of health services.
We keep costs as low as possible, while also providing a high level of professional care. Some of the services we provide include:
- Diagnosis and treatment of physical health problems
- Immunizations, including all of those required for entry into Health Occupation Programs
- Reproductive health exams and STI screenings
- Basic first aid
- Lab tests
- Physical exams
The Counseling and Health Center makes a variety of free self-care items available to students. This includes over-the-counter medications, sexual health items, menstrual supplies, hot tea, snacks, and more.
We are also a quiet, peaceful, safe place for students to study, color in our coloring books, admire the artwork of fellow students in our lobby, or just hang out. Students are welcome to drop in anytime during open hours.
