Spring 2020 Programs: SUSPENDED UNTIL FALL 2020

 Life Imitates Art - Wednesdays 2-3pm Suite 316 Turley Center

             A peer run support group.  During each session, we will discuss an aspect of mental health by pairing it with an artistic activity to help us better understand ourselves and our feelings. These aspects can include stress, anxiety, depression, and loneliness. Life Imitates Art will give students a safe, no expectation environment to learn about themselves and connect with other students. Sessions will be offered according to the schedule and are open to anyone who would like to attend.

Daily Meditation - MTWRF 8:15 am in Suite 316 Turley Center

Mindfulness meditation is the practice of intentionally focusing on the present moment, accepting and non-judgmentally paying attention to sensations, thoughts, and emotions that arise. Learning mindfulness is a great way to strengthen focus and concentration, quiet an overactive mind, and help manage anxiety.                

Alcohol and Other Drugs 

Students mandated to attend psycho-educational counseling for drug and alcohol infractions must contact our office to schedule individual meetings with clinical staff.

Walk-In hours (no appointment necessary, first come, first serve): SUSPENDED UNTIL FALL 2020

 

To ensure that treatment is received in a timely manner we work closely with community resources. We adhere to ethical principles that may necessitate referral off campus should a potential conflict or limits to our scope/competency, or capacity arise.
