Counseling Services is committed to the development of the whole person: intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and socially.  As part of this commitment,  Counseling Services recognizes the need for specific outreach, resources, and engagement of our students who have disabilities.   

While not every student has the same experience, students with disabilities may face unique struggles in their college experience that trigger emotional distress.   While our team of clinicians in Counseling Services may not represent all identity backgrounds making up our student body, we are committed to providing a welcoming environment, where all identities, abilities, beliefs, and experiences are recognized and valued.   In addition to services we offer on-campus via counseling, case management, crisis intervention, groups, and outreach programming, we have collaborated with the Office of Accessibility Resources and the JED Campus Team to compile resources here specific to the emotional and mental health needs of students with disabilities.  Students are welcome to meet with Counseling Services or the Office of Accessibility Resources for support and to learn more about any of the resources listed below.
