Group Counseling

Many students benefit from counseling in a group format where common concerns can be explored.

Groups offer the opportunity to learn new skills and to share your concerns in a safe environment, by meeting with other students. Some groups are focused on a common concern, such as social anxiety, relationships transitions or mood problems. Other groups offer an opportunity for students with a common identity or concern to offer each other support

Prevention, Education, Outreach

Outreach is about connecting with the campus community to increase college mental health through awareness, education, and stigma reduction.

We actively engage students, faculty, staff and parents in creating a healthy campus environment and preventing mental health problems. We also do all we can to connect with students who do not utilize tradition counseling.
