Mount Aloysius College is committed to providing a variety of services to improve our students’ overall wellness. Our Licensed Counselor offers a broad range of confidential services that address the psychological, educational, developmental, and social needs of our students. Our counselor will help students learn better ways to cope with their stressors and establish goals that will enhance their overall academic and personal experience. Any full or part-time undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled at Mount Aloysius College may use our services. Services are free, voluntary and confidential.
Students can meet with our counselor to discuss any personal concerns they are experiencing. The goal is to help students learn to cope with their stressors so they can focus on their academics and function more effectively and independently in their personal lives.
Students may find group counseling to be very beneficial. Students meet with the counselor and their peers in a confidential group setting to discuss similar concerns and receive feedback.
If a student requires additional services, the counselor will make referrals to help him/her to connect with community agencies.
In the event of after hour emergencies pertaining to issues of mental health, we utilize an on-call rotation system to respond quickly and directly to concerns.
