Counseling for Personal Challenges

Counseling can help you address a host of challenges, including: life transition, stress and time management, grief and loss, testing and public speaking anxiety, family issues, relationship conflict, veterans' re-entry, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. 

Stress and Time Management Coaching

Being a college student is stressful. Wellness Center staff can help you create a stress and time management plan and develop other personal organizational skills.  

Connect to Public Aid & Community Resources

Many students are unaware that they qualify for various public aid programs such as SNAP, subsidized health insurance/Medicaid, unemployment, & supportive and emergency housing. The Wellness Center can help you learn more about these programs and how to apply and also assist you in connecting to low- or no-cost community resources, such as medical and dental care, groceries and hot meals, legal services, and child care.  

Support Groups

Support groups are offered on topics relevant to college students, such as stress and time management, busy parents, anger management, and veteran's issues. Check with your Wellness Center to see what is offered for each term.​
