Counseling Center Overview
Located in the Murden Health Center, the Counseling Center offers confidential counseling for dealing with issues and life problems with trained professionals. Students often seek counseling when they realize that they need help making difficult life choices, and our counseling staff provides support in a variety of circumstances. Any reason is a good reason to come to counseling. If you are curious about the process or would like some support, even around something you may not consider to be a large issue, you are welcome to make an appointment with us!
Our Counseling Center offers very limited psychiatric support. Students seeking the on-going support of a psychiatrist should make arrangements with an off-campus resource. We are happy to provide referrals and be a partner in developing a plan for success.
Counseling Services are provided free of charge to all enrolled students. The Counseling Center provides:
- short term individual and couples counseling;
- crisis intervention;
- referral to community providers, resources, and self-help communities.
The counselors regard the information you share with them with the greatest respect and privacy. In most circumstances, they will tell no one what you have told them. The privacy and confidentiality of your conversations is protected by state law and professional ethics in all but a few circumstances.
Confidentiality cannot be guaranteed when the counselors believe:
- you intend to harm yourself or another person
- a child or dependent adult has been or will be abused or neglected
The counselors will not tell anyone, including friends, parents, faculty, staff, or administration, anything about your counseling process, or even that you are a client, without your explicit permission, usually indicated by a signed Release of Information Form.
As a student at Warren Wilson, you will have 24/7 access to mental health resources through TimelyMD.
TimelyMD offers mental health services in the form of:
- TalkNow: Speak with a mental health provider at any time.
- Scheduled Counseling: Schedule up to 12 free counseling sessions per year.
