ABOUT THE COUNSELING AND WELLNESS CENTER

The Center provides a wide range of services that supports the holistic development of all students in body, mind and spirit. These services are free and confidential; they are available so that students can flourish academically, socially, emotionally, and psychologically.

Prevention, outreach, education, and immediate consultation services are available to students, faculty, and staff. All of these services are important in promoting emotional and psychological well-being, academic success, and safety on campus.

Our services can be divided into the Four Pillars of Health and Healing:

I.  Counseling Services

II. Alternative and Complimentary Services

III. Intervention Services

IV. Outreach Services

It is recommended that students seek help and support when problems arise. We encourage all students who are experiencing difficulties that could compromise their ability to remain enrolled at St. Joseph’s College to contact us immediately to set up an appointment with a counselor.

The Counseling and Wellness Center is committed to affirming and respecting people of all backgrounds. We aim to respond respectfully and empathetically to each person’s unique struggle, personal history, and cultural background.

All services are free and confidential. No information is recorded on your school record.
