Mental Health Services

College can be a stressful time. If you are a currently enrolled student and would like free mental health counseling, our counselors can work with you in a safe, confidential setting, in a convenient location - right on campus. 

Personal counseling

We can assist you in personal counseling needs such as:

  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Feeling sad or stressed
  • Lack of motivation
  • Procrastination
  • Strained relationships
  • Test anxiety

Mental health assessments, treatment plans, and psychotherapy

You may experience a range of issues that can cause barriers to learning, or reduce your ability to participate in daily activities. We provide diagnostic assessments, development of treatment plans, and psychotherapy to address concerns such as:

Free online mental health screening

Our online mental health screening is designed to provide a safe, anonymous way for you to check in on your mental health. This self-assessment allows you to screen yourself for mood and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and alcohol use disorders. It can tell you if your results are consistent with a mental health disorder, give you an overview of the signs and symptoms of treatable mental health disorders, and provide access to local, quality treatment options. 

Your results are anonymous. You are encouraged to call 952-358-8261 for an appointment if needed. 

Mental Health Screening Day

National Mental Health Screening Day is a FREE mental health awareness day. It is a nationwide outreach, education, and screening campaign that happens on our campus each year. Think of it as a "mental health check-up." The anonymous screening covers depression, aniety, mood disorder, and post-traumatic stress. You will have the opportunity to meet with a mental health professional to go over your results. 

This event is held on campus in February every year. You can take the online mental health screening all year long. 

Crisis Intervention

There are times when you may feel overwhelmed and unable to cope. Crisis counseling is short-term and focused on the management of mental health during the time of crisis. We are available during normal office hours to meet with you in urgent need. For after-hours emergencies, visit the mental health resources in the Student Resource Center or call 911. 

Referrals

In the course of providing personal counseling to students, many are referred to appropriate community resources. A partial listing is provided in our Student Resource Center. We can also assist you with finding a therapist.
