We know that whatever affects the personal lives of students can also affect the ability to learn. Our goal at Student Health and Wellness is to provide access to counseling services which help Grinnell students succeed academically, personally, and interpersonally. Some students seek our services simply because they want to have a confidentiality conversation with a counselor; others are experiencing significant distress.
Our counseling team includes:
- Licensed psychologists
- Licensed mental health counselors
- Licensed independent social workers
- Therapists pursuing license and under the supervision of a licensed staff therapist
- Graduate level trainees under the supervision of a licensed staff therapist
We also have connections with providers in the surrounding community for students who prefer to see an off-campus provider.
The cost of counseling services are covered by student tuition fees. Thus, you must be an enrolled student at Grinnell to seek our services. We do not provide services to benefits-eligible employees of the college. We also do not treat families, friends, or peers of students who are not enrolled at Grinnell.
