Counseling Services

Counseling Services supports the academic success of students by enhancing their overall health and wellness through the use of comprehensive and holistic mental health, substance misuse, and sexual assault/relationship violence-related services. Operating from a social justice lens and a multicultural framework, Counseling Services strives to assist students by advocating and providing support as needed during times of crisis, facilitating problem-solving, enhancing coping strategies, facilitating campus wide outreach, training and prevention to raise mental health awareness, promoting personal development and growth, and supporting academic success through the use of short-term, culturally, and developmentally appropriate services.

Additionally, we acknowledge the impact of systemic, structural, and institutional racism in our society.  As members of the DePauw community, mental health professionals, and compassionate human beings, we are committed to dismantling racism and supporting those students who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) in our community and who have faced marginalization, violence, and oppression. Our team recognizes the importance of ongoing social justice work as we pledge continued commitment to the mental health and well-being of our students. This work includes the provision of culturally-responsive and trauma-informed individual counseling, group therapy and support, and educational outreach.
