Coronavirus and Your Mental Health

Over the last couple of months, we have seen the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) slowly move closer to home. This has dominated our headlines and the information feels difficult to escape. Counseling Services staff want to assure you that it is normal to experience worry in the face of uncertainty. 

Additionally, we ask members of our community to reflect on their behaviors associated with these circumstances. Xenophobic jokes and remarks can inflict real harm and stigmatize different groups represented in our community. Please remember to be the kind, caring and compassionate community members that contribute to the collective mental health of this campus.

Online screenings

Online screenings are available for depression, bipolar disorder, alcohol, eating disorders, generalized anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The Counseling Services Center provides free and confidential mental health assistance for all enrolled students to encourage a healthy mind and body at Health Services.

We offer a variety of services, including individual, group and couples counseling, as well as fun outreach and educational activities designed to support interpersonal growth. The CSC staff value multicultural competence and honor the individuality of each student.
