UNIVERSITY COUNSELING SERVICES
The University Counseling Service provides both developmental and remedial mental health counseling for Wittenberg students. The Counseling Service is located in the Health and Wellness Center in Room 003, Shouvlin Center. All registered full time traditional Wittenberg students are eligible for the services. Specifically, the Counseling Service provides short-term individual counseling for personal, family, academic, or behavioral concerns; crisis intervention; substance abuse prevention and treatment; consultation to the campus community and parents of students; selected assessment of mental health status; outreach and professional development programming; and referral. All services are provided by an experienced, professional counselor and are free to full-time students. Students are seen a soon as possible and priority is given to emergencies. All services are confidential within appropriate professional limits and this is explained to every student at the beginning of counseling. Referrals to other University and local agencies are made when appropriate for learning disabilities, psychological, or psychiatric assessment; for psychological or medical treatment; or for specific academic or career concerns. Students are responsible for the cost of private referrals. Referrals from students, faculty, staff and administrators are welcome. Appointments can be made by stopping by or calling the Counseling Service at 327-7811.
Assessments of problem areas are available. If psychological testing is indicated, students are referred to private psychologists in the community where they are charged for these services. The counseling service does not provide evaluation for learning disabilities. Contact the Academic Services Office for information concerning the evaluation of learning disabilities or the counselor for referral sources who provides testing of learning disabilities.
