The Center for Wellness provides mental health and wellness services to students using a Stepped Care model which may include mental health counseling, referrals to on campus support services, online skills-based modules, crisis intervention, referrals to off campus providers, education and programs related to health promotion, suicide prevention, fitness and general wellbeing.

Counseling Services

The Center for Wellness is staffed by professionally trained and licensed counselors who are available to provide students with a variety of treatment modalities for mental health concerns. Counselors are consulted for many reasons, which may include anxiety, depression, sexual assault/sexual violence, problems in relationships, substance abuse, and adjustment to college life. Students may receive services on a short-term basis. These services may include referrals to other campus resources, online psychoeducational modules, workshops, groups, or a referral to a qualified professional in the community who can better meet their specific or longer-term counseling needs. All services are free and confidential.  No mental health information is released to parents, guardians, or non-counseling staff without the student’s written authorization unless required by law or in a life-threatening situation.

In addition to counseling appointments, the Center for Wellness offers walk-in hours each day from 11am to 12 noon and 3pm to 4pm for brief meetings with a counselor.  The Center provides students with 24/7 access to telephonic emotional support. Center staff also assist with mental health emergencies requiring higher levels of care when necessary.  A counselor on-call is available 24/7 via phone to assist with these emergencies.

The Center is located on the second floor of Williston Hall and is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm in person with evening hours provided virtually for student convenience.  Appointments may be made in person or by calling (617) 989-4390.
