About Student Counseling Services

Our goal is to enhance each individual's ability to learn, to create and to be fully participating members of the College community by utilizing safe, culturally sensitive and inclusive approaches to mental health treatment. Care is provided in a safe and non-judgmental atmosphere at no cost to the student.

Some students come only once or twice to discuss something that concerns them, while others may require more ongoing care. The counselors also consult with students, faculty, staff or family members if they are concerned about a specific student.

*Connecticut College Student Counseling Services has been accredited by the International Accreditation of Counseling Services (IACS) since 2005.
