Transitioning to college can be overwhelming, and staying healthy, in heart, body, mind, and spirit is important to maintaining success in your academic life. Balance is an aspect of the Benedictine way of life, and it encourages us to embrace physical health, intellectual challenge, social interaction and personal reflection. We are here to support you in your journey of health and wellness at Saint Martin's University.

Saint Martin's Counseling and Wellness Services' response to COVID 19:
Saint Martin's is moving to online classes only while the campus remains open at this time.
The CWC will continue offering in-person counseling and phone sessions. There is also a plan to offer video and e-therapy sessions in the near future.
In the event campus is closed entirely:
Phone counseling as well as video and e-therapy (when available) sessions will be offered.
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 they practice. If so, your counselor or one of the staff will assist you in locating counseling services in your area.

- If you have current health insurance through Saint Martin's, your United Healthcare (UHC) policy covers 24/7 e-therapy through www.betterhelp.com.
