Who We Are and What We Do
We care. You do not have to struggle alone.
Who We Are (Our Mission)
Our mission is to offer accessible, judgment-free spaces where students can focus on enhancing strengths and overcoming challenges that affect mental health. We are committed to fostering student well-being, resilience, and growth, and helping students achieve their own goals on their own terms. We strive to balance respect for each student's unique experience with our understanding of the challenges shared by many college students. In keeping with Springfield College's Humanics philosophy, we view mental health as connected to physical, emotional, social, and spiritual health.
What We Do
The Counseling Center provides free, confidential counseling to undergraduate and graduate students at Springfield College. Both individual and group sessions are offered. Many students use our services at some point during their academic careers, and we support students dealing with a wide range of responses to challenge during one of the biggest transitions of their lives.
A staff of mental health professionals, including graduate associates, work collaboratively with students. If medication is indicated, a consultation with a prescriber may be arranged. The Counseling Center also runs outreach programs, ranging from suicide awareness and prevention to a network for student support.
