Please call Student Affairs 740-245-7350  or stop by the office to set up an appointment with one of our counselors.  We will have counselors on Mondays 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m and the same on Thursdays 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The office of Student Affairs works closely with the counselor’s at Hopewell Health for a short term, solutions focused session that will view the client within the total context of his or her environment.  Treatment will emphasize a team approach with behavioral health counseling and therapy, pharmacologic management, community psychiatric supportive treatment and crisis intervention mental health services.  Therapy will generally be short-term or intermittent with  appropriate levels of  community psychiatric supportive treatment and pharmacologic management interventions.  Emphasis will be placed on designing the mode of treatment to fit the client’s presenting problem rather than attempting to force the client’s problems into a preconceived, uniform method of treatment.  This implies the need for a continuum of  treatment services and modalities and individualized treatment based upon assessed client needs and strengths.
