Student Resources

There may be times, for many reasons, that the problems of life feel overwhelming. Or there may be times when people have experiences or engage in behavior that is not entirely in their control.  For the student who is looking for additional support, or who is contemplating the seriousness of things like current behavior, emotional state, substance use, relationship problems, and stress, may wonder what the best help may be.  These recourses can be a useful starting point to finding the best possible support or care for an individual’s needs. 

No one has to go through this alone.  Counseling Services is available to help students navigate the choices for care and support and to provide direct counseling and referrals to meet a student’s needs.
