The Counseling Center provides mental health services to students and is staffed by licensed and experienced professionals skilled in handling a variety of presenting concerns. Services are designed to assist students in resolving issues that interfere with their ability to successfully navigate the Mines journey. Services are confidential, voluntary and covered by student fees. In addition to personal counseling, staff can provide consultation, outreach and programming for the Mines campus community.
Individual, short-term professional counseling can help students identify and resolve personal challenges that get in the way of emotional health and wellbeing. Our approach to counseling focuses on the developmental needs and challenges of our diverse student population. Counseling sessions address ways students can learn to cultivate healthy lifestyles, make good choices, develop effective communication/relationship building skills, and minimize high-risk behaviors. Therapy addresses problems that may interfere with a student’s ability to meet daily demands.
Emotional Wellbeing Workshops
After the initial consultation, many students are referred to one of our Emotional Wellbeing Workshops, an innovative series created to provide quick and useful tools without overburdening the busy schedules of Mines students. Each workshop is broken up into three sessions, provided once per week in 50-minute slots. Workshops come with a student workbook that will allow you to practice new skills between sessions. Currently, we are offering two workshop topics. We will be introducing additional relevant topics in the near future.
If you are interested in attending any of the workshops, schedule an Initial Consultation and tell your counselor. You are free to do more than one workshop and to repeat them as often as you like. Check with the front desk for current scheduling and availability.
Programs, Presentations and Outreach
Counselors provide education, presentations and workshops by request for various campus organizations or groups. Faculty, staff or student representatives may request a program by submitting a Program Request Form. We are happy to discuss your program needs with you in detail or make suggestions based on your specific situation. Requests must be made at least two weeks prior to the program date.
