Counseling and Wellness Center

We're Here To Listen

The Counseling and Wellness Center works to provide inclusive, individualized, collaborative care and support to the students of ĻӰ in a safe and confidential environment.

Through education and advocacy, we provide the entire ĻӰ community with the tools, resources, and skills necessary to understand, accept, and promote mental health and wellness. Focusing on strengths and resiliency, we foster opportunities for growth in which students will thrive, personally and academically.

Our primary purpose is to provide psychological support to students as they pursue their academic and personal goals, enhancing the student experience at ĻӰ. The Counseling and Wellness Center is primarily intended for assessment and short-term counseling, with referrals to local private counselors for longer-term treatment or psychological testing, if necessary.

The center is funded through the University Health Services Fee; there are no additional charges for services. Although we follow a short-term intervention model, the number of sessions varies and is discussed as part of the initial intake process.

Students come to the Counseling and Wellness Center for many reasons, including adjusting to college life, relationship difficulties, grief, family problems, academic stress, issues around identity development, depression, anxiety, eating and weight concerns, substance abuse and sexual and physical abuse and harassment.

The Counseling and Wellness Center at ĻӰ follows privacy and confidentiality guidelines set forth by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the American Psychological Association, and the American College Counseling Association.

Some limits to privacy exist. With few exceptions involving safety and legal issues, information is not shared outside of counseling sessions without the student’s written permission.

Clinical files are safeguarded and DO NOT become part of students’ medical or military records. Seeking services through our center WILL NOT negatively impact a cadet’s standing. We are a nonmedical facility.
