As a Trailblazer Team Member of a student, you may have concerns about your student's well-being. If those concerns involve their mental health, the Counseling Center staff is here to provide your student with a variety of services and support. Our staff consists of experienced professionals who are dedicated to aiding students in navigating the excitement and challenges of adjusting to their “home away from home.” All our services are free and confidential.

The transition from home to campus can bring up feelings of 

  • Homesickness
  • Loneliness
  • Anxiety
  • Stress 

Campus life can present new and unique situations for students no matter if this is their first time away at college or they are a returning student. If your student is expressing any of these feelings or has shared other issues they are facing, we want you to know that there is staff here to help. Sometimes a solution can be as easy as having someone in your corner to listen to what is going on and provide a safe place to talk.
