Welcome! The Counseling and Wellness Center is happy to serve the students of Saint Martin's University.
The Counseling and Wellness Center promotes and enhances the health and development of Saint Martin’s University students through professional mental health services, education and training. Integrating faith, reason and service, we empower students to develop self-awareness, knowledge and the skills necessary to make healthy choices and build relationships in a multicultural world. We also provide consultative services and training for staff and faculty to foster an environment supportive of student development and wellness.
8 a.m. and 5 p.m. / Appointments are scheduled between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
During regular office hours, counseling is available by Telehealth (Zoom) or face to face (with face masks and distancing). To ensure social distancing, the door to the CWC will remain locked. If you have a scheduled face to face appointment, someone will let you in at your scheduled appointment time. There is a doorbell to ring for admittance if needed.
To make an appointment, you may either email or call the CWC:
Please note: If you have returned home to an out of state location, CWC counselors may not be able to provide counseling due to the need to be licensed in the state the client receives services. If so, your counselor or one of the CWC staff will assist you in locating counseling services in your area.
