About the Counseling Service

  • We support the mission of the college by helping students address illness and other mental health challenges that impede their progress toward achieving their full academic potential and most purposeful engagement in the world.
  • Counseling Service is part of the Division of Student Life, and is located, along with College Health Services, in the Pattie J. Groves Health Center.
  • Each year we work with about 30-35% of the MHC student population.
  • By the time a class graduates, we have interacted with about 65-70% of the students in that class.
  • We are dedicated to the provision of culturally competent services and issues of diversity, equity, access, and inclusion.
