Mental Health Resources

Your years as a college student will remain one of the most transformative times of your life.  You’ll make new friendships, broaden your mind and curiosity for knowledge, and experience a wealth of new adventures.  But the transition isn’t always easy.  Many students also face issues with anxiety, shyness, depression, sexual issues, or concerns regarding alcohol and other drugs.  These are issues that do not discriminate and can affect anyone, regardless of race, age, or gender.  If you are struggling with something, we want you to know that you’re not alone and La Salle University’s Student Counseling Center is here to help you.

With a dedicated staff committed to your well-being and personal development, along with a wide range of services, we will help you face any challenge.  Counseling offers you the opportunity to identify, clarify, and resolve issues of importance to you in an atmosphere of trust and confidentiality.  Within the context of the counseling relationship, you are able to freely express your thoughts, feelings, and concerns to someone who listens and is prepared to work with you to arrive at new ways of looking at things.  If you’re interested in speaking with someone to sort out the present or the future, we’re here to listen and help.
