Mental Health Counseling


The Wellness Center is committed to assisting all students in realizing their goals at the college. This includes the provision of mental health counseling.

  • Our Personal Counselor and Mental Health Liaison are available to provide crisis intervention, assessment, support and referrals to students needing assistance adjusting to college life or experiencing mental health difficulties. This includes helping students to assess, identify and manage personal and mental health difficulties within the context of their academic experience, and connecting students to appropriate resources.
  • Information shared with the Personal Counselor and Mental Health Liaison is confidential unless disclosure is required to prevent clear and imminent danger to the student or others, or when legal requirements demand that confidential information be revealed. When disclosure is required, only information that is essential will be revealed and the student will be informed to the best extent possible.
  • Within the guidelines of confidentiality, the Personal Counselor and Mental Health Liaison may seek in-house professional consultation when it is deemed necessary and/or may request written permission to speak with other relevant parties.
  • Referrals to community resources are available and will be made when requested or deemed necessary, however follow-through is at the discretion of the student.

Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides confidential professional help for employees having personal problems.  The EAP can help with personal problems such as interpersonal conflict, alcohol and drug abuse/dependency, marital conflict, family and parenting concerns, financial hardship, physical illness, legal difficulties, gambling, mental and emotional distress, eating disorders and other life stresses.

EAP services are available off campus to all eligible employees and their dependent family members.  An employee and/or dependent visiting the EAP will have an opportunity to talk with a professional about concerns and receive counseling and referral services to help resolve the problem.  Direct services of the program are provided at no cost to an employee or dependent family member.  Activities and records of the EAP are kept strictly confidential by the program provider.

An employee or dependent family member may access the EAP directly — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week — by calling 1-800-962-7487 for an appointment.  Additional information about EAP is available from the Human Resources Office (Orange Hall), ext. 4660.
