Consistent with the holistic philosophy of Health Services the primary goal of the Counseling Service is to foster the emotional development and well-being of the Saint Anselm Student. As a goal-directed and time-limited counseling service, professionals are available to provide individual and group counseling, as well as information, resources, and referrals, pertaining to mental health issues. Some of the issues that professionals help with include adjusting to college, relationship and roommate conflict, family problems, depressions, anxiety, grief, substance, eating disorders, sexual assault, or intimate partner violence. The counseling service also provides outreach and educational programs to students regarding mental health issues.
Students may call (603) 641-7028 or stop by Health Services to make an appointment with a counselor. Also Residential Life staff, faculty members, and friends are encouraged to refer students whom they believe will benefit from counseling services. These services are available to all full time matriculated students at no additional charge. Information discussed with the counseling staff is confidential and is not a part of the student’s academic record. For some students a referral to an outside agency may be appropriate. In such instances, the student is responsible for expenses incurred.
24 hour notice is required for cancellation of appointment or a $20.00 fee will be incurred.
