Email and Voice Mail

Student Health and Counseling Services (SHACS) is dedicated to providing Grinnell College students with the highest quality of care and to protecting the privacy of student information.  For these reasons, we prefer not to use email to communicate with our clients.  We use email only to respond to general, non-medical/clinical questions and to send appointment reminders.  If you need to speak with your counselor or nurse, call during business hours.  If he/she/zi is unavailable, leave a message with our receptionist.

Be Well at Grinnell

If you take good care of your mind and body, your mind and body will take great care of you!  This does not have to involve a lot of time or energy on your part.  Taking good care of yourself really just means identifying the personal balance you need among work, sleep, play, physical activity, social time, and quiet time – and making it a priority to maintain that balance.

It can be easy at Grinnell to live in an unbalanced way.  However, there are all sorts of practices you can add to your day which will help you feel and function well.  Some basics include:

Confidentiality

Your care at Student Health and Counseling Services (SHACS) will be confidential.  We will neither acknowledge to others that you are a client here nor discuss your treatment here without your permission. There are some limits to confidentiality, but they occur only in extreme situations.  Your nurse or counselor will discuss the limits to confidentiality with you during your first nursing or counseling appointment, respectively.  You, of course, are free to discuss your care at SHACS with others.

Services After Hours

When Student Health and Counseling Services (SHACS) is closed, health and mental health consultation and assistance are still available to you.

Emergency Assistance

Call Campus Safety and Security at 641-269-4600.  Depending on the urgency of your situation, the Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) on call may phone or visit you, or Campus Safety and Security may arrive with emergency responders.

DSA Annual Reports

At the end of each academic year, all areas within the College complete an annual report. The Division of Student Affairs routinely engages in reflection, goal-setting, and evaluation of its programs, services, and staff. The results of these reflexive practices are incorporated into the DSA reports.

This page serves as a central clearinghouse for all DSA annual reports to the College President and Board of Trustees.
