|Welcome to the Wellness Center|
The mission of the Wellness Center is to provide services that will improve the emotional health and overall well-being of the University’s students. A holistic, culturally-sensitive approach is taken, that includes emphasis in areas of physical, social, and emotional well-being.
Counseling is available at no additional cost to students who are currently enrolled at UWest.
It is normal to need someone to talk to who can be objective and helpful. Using available resources during your times of need can improve your well-being and help you be a successful student.
During your first visit, a licensed professional will listen to your concerns and help you explore your options. In a safe and nonjudgmental environment you are able to discuss your concerns in privacy.
