Family Support

Family and Loved Ones

At times, you may worry about your student and want to know how to help them. While we are not able to share protected health information outwardly, we are able to consult and assist in accessing our array of mental health services, as well as offer suggestions to guide your student towards helpful resources.

As students begin the exciting yet challenging journey at Mines, families must navigate a variety of transitions.  It is common for students to experience unease as they adjust to college life and the many changes ahead. The Counseling Center team is available to help students manage the emotional impact and build useful skills as they navigate this transformative experience.

If you are concerned about your student and want to recommend counseling support for them, we encourage you to explore the free, confidential counseling options available to them as a first step. You can also call us at 303-273-3377 during open hours for further information and guidance.

Please see below for more specific information and links to helpful campus resources and informative articles.

Thank you for taking the time to check out our resources and for supporting your student!
