Welcome to the MHWC

Summer Services

Registered students are allowed four sessions during summer session. We have a limited number of clinicians, so we are providing services on a first-come, first-served basis – Monday through Thursday – until our maximum capacity is reached.

  • We will be CLOSED on Tuesday, July 9
  • We also offer these online services, available anytime:
    • TimelyCare – speak online with a mental health professional, 24/7
    • Wellness Central – get health and wellness information
    • eCheckup To Go – learn how to support your own well-being and healthy behavior

If You Have an Emergency

Call 9-1-1 or go to the nearest hospital. The Mental Health and Wellness Center is not a 24-hour program. For immediate assistance, see the list of 24-hour crisis hotlines below.
