While we are all excited about our student's growth in college, we also know that sometimes this growth comes with some growing pains, challenges, and setbacks. These struggles are common and understandable, and support is available. Counseling Services has trained professional counselors ready to assist your students in resolving personal problems, improving their mental health and wellbeing, and perform at their best. Counseling Services are free and fully confidential, so students simply need to call 203-392-5475 to schedule an appointment, stop by the office in Engelman B 219, or visit our website for further information at www.southernct.edu/counseling.
Mental Health Support
Mental health is an important part of a successful college experience. Counseling Services is committed to the mental health and well-being of our students. Our services are FREE and confidential to all enrolled students.
Students may schedule a 15-20 minute initial appointment (available daily) in order to obtain a better understanding of specific concerns and how to best help. No cost to enrolled students.
At the end of this appointment, a collaborative plan will be made for brief, goal directed treatment matched to your needs.
