How We Help

The Wellness Center’s Team provides a wide variety of medical, emotional health and wellness promotion services to all students at KSC. The services we provide are designed to help address existing challenges and prevent future problems. In cases where we cannot provide needed services on-campus we will work with the student to access services and resources off-campus. Examples of some of our services are below, please be in touch with questions about these or other concerns you may have.

Emotional Health Services

In addition to short-term individual counseling and group counseling, the Center offers consultation to staff, faculty and students; referrals for care to other professionals and agencies; urgent services including an after-hour emergency counselor hotline; campus outreach; and a wide variety of campus programs and events focused on the improvement of emotional well-being, challenging cultural stigma about emotional health difficulties, and problem prevention. Wherever we are, know that we are available to help you whichever way is uniquely appropriate for you.
