Counseling & Consultation Services serves to support and promote mental health of our students at IWU.
Counseling is provided by licensed psychologists, counselors, and social workers, for a variety of concerns, including, but not limited to, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, disordered eating, trauma, loss, adjustment, time management, and study skills. There is no charge for these services.
Here are some comments that we have received from IWU students regarding our services at CCS. These were in response to our anonymous client satisfaction survey. Fifty percent of students responding to this survey reported that our services helped them to focus better academically, and over twenty five percent stated that they had considered leaving IWU but counseling helped them to stay. Here are some recent comments by students:
|"I attribute much of my success at IWU due to the care and dedication that Counseling Services has provided me over the past three years. I honestly don't know where I would be without it."
|"I truly feel that if I did not have my counselor's help, then I would have not made it through my first semester of college and would have dropped out. He helped me deal with so many aspects of my life and I needed his help so much, even though I didn't really know it. He has helped me deal with my past, my family, my college life, and now I know steps to take to deal with everything."
|The work of the IWU counseling and consultation experts is without a doubt the most successful part of Illinois Wesleyan. Without your health there is nothing to life, and I truly feel that the counselors work their best to help you achieve an appropriate mental health."
|"I have had a great experience with Counseling Services over the past three years. The Office Coordinator at the front desk is always in a great mood. He's always so friendly and positive. It definitely makes for a good atmosphere."
|My counselor was personable, straightforward and made me feel like I had control over my situation. THANK YOU CCS!"
