Counseling and Case Management Services

Counseling and case management services are free and available for all current students to assist in dealing with issues that impact their overall well-being. Your counselor understands that there are pressures and challenges faced while in college – not all of them academic. Through counseling and case management, current students can share problems in a safe and supportive space.

Counselors can help during these times by:
  • Sharing ways to manage stress and anxiety
  • Linking students to school and community resources
  • Discussing emergency assistance options for students
  • Assist in improving problem-solving and coping skills
  • Helping identify strengths and sources of support
  • Offering a different perspective
  • Providing a safe place to talk and have someone who will listen
