COUNSELING, HEALTH & WELLNESS MISSION STATEMENT
Suffolk University’s Center for Counseling, Health and Wellness appreciates that health is multi-faceted and requires a holistic approach.
As such, our mission is to provide integrated, culturally sensitive services that support the academic success and personal development of our students as well as the overall health of the Suffolk University community.
Through counseling, medical services, consultation, educational outreach, mind-body practices and referral, our goal is to promote student well-being and resiliency while empowering students to develop self-advocacy and healthy decision-making
The Counseling Center's primary goal is to provide timely and comprehensive short-term counseling services to Suffolk University undergraduate and graduate students.
The Counseling Center is committed to using its full resources in helping to expand the positive and productive learning environment at Suffolk University for students, faculty, and administrators alike.
The Counseling Center is staffed by an interdisciplinary mental health team consisting of licensed psychologists, psychology doctoral interns, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, and a licensed social worker who serves as a case manager. Entry level staff psychologists hired in CHW are required to become licensed. Accredited since 1975 by the International Association of Counseling Services (IACS) and with an American Psychological Association-approved (APA) doctoral internship program that was originally accredited in 1995, CHW Counseling Services continues to play a very active and important role in the life of the University. Staff provides a wide spectrum of services including individual and group counseling, outreach and consultation, training and supervision.
