Emotional health for CCU students
Mind, body and spirit are inseparably linked. To be healthy, students must not only pay attention to fitness and disease prevention, but also to emotional health.
- Sometimes students come to college with past traumas that need to be addressed.
- Sometimes fully participating in college leads to considerable emotional stress.
- Sometimes bad things happen in college that lead to emotional distress.
- Sometimes mental diseases first appear in young adulthood.
These are all good reasons to be proactive in promoting emotional health. The resources on this page provide information about counseling services available to students, self-help opportunities, and ways to get involved in promoting emotional well being of all CCU students.
Counseling Services offers a wide variety of clinical services to students including individual, couples, and group counseling; psychiatric consultation, clinical assessment and testing; nutrition counseling; crisis services; substance abuse services; and referrals. Specialized types and styles of counseling are also offered such as hypnosis, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and dialectic behavior therapy. All clinicians are appropriately licensed in their fields.
Crisis Services: Students experiencing a psychological emergency can be seen immediately in Counseling Services. During regular office hours (Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.), a student can simply “show up” and be seen. Crisis services are offered after hours when students are experiencing psychological emergencies such as suicidal behavior, sexual assault, or psychotic thoughts. A counselor can be reached after hours by contacting Public Safety at 843-349-2911.
